Work for us

Lifelong Links is a new approach in the UK which aims to build lasting relationships for children in care.

The Lifelong Links model will provide tools and techniques for professionals to search for and find family members and other adults who care about the child. This network is then convened by a family group conference (FGC) to make a life-long support plan with, and for the young person.

A three year trial of Lifelong Links will be initially conducted in seven authorities in England (Camden, Coventry, Devon, Hertfordshire, Kent, North Yorkshire and Southwark). It will then be rolled out to other authorities. The trial will be independently evaluated.

We are now recruiting a team to lead and support the introduction and sustainability of Lifelong Links in the UK. You will play a key part in ensuring the trial is robust and successful. You will be committed to the objectives of Family Rights Group and Lifelong Links. The posts are funded by the Department for Education Innovation Programme.

We are a family friendly employer that strives to promote equal opportunities.

All staff employed by Family Rights Group have to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
