What’s it like, working here at Glebe House in our Support Team? We asked one of our team leaders and this is what they said:

“We are called Milieu Project Workers. That’s French for ‘environment’ and really means that we create a safe, secure, familial environment for our boys. There are three shifts, days/ afternoons/ nights, regular meetings daily and we have four main accountabilities to help us to maintain routines and prepare our boys for leaving us to manage independently. We have a real community here, so everything that we do fosters a sense of that, of belonging, of responsibility and purpose – from breakfast or lunches eaten together to enjoying a game of pool.

As a charity, we provide a genuinely warm atmosphere and we Project Workers work together on Events like Harry Potter Day, Super Hero Night, Sports Day, Treasure Hunts, Crafternoons, or Ultimate Frisbee.

What sort of person do we need? We value diversity, as the Glebe House Community mirrors the outside world. We have Workers with skills in arts and crafts, and those who are sporty. Most of all, we really want people who are community-spirited, open-minded, and passionate about providing support for young people. If you have a hobby, bring it with you!

  • We utilise the PACE method here (Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity and Empathy) as this helps to build emotional trust which is key when working with our boys, if you have experience of this method, great! Otherwise, if you can demonstrate these qualities, we’ll provide full training

What you need to know about us:

Glebe House is an established charity, offering therapeutic care and educational development in a Residential environment to boys aged 15-18 who have displayed harmful sexual behaviours. We provide support for these boys who have been referred either through Children’s Services, or as directed by the Court.
