Youth Justice Partnership Manager (Post: AS555) - Refugee Council

Youth Justice Partnership Manager (Post: AS555)


Founded in 1951, the Refugee Council exists to support people who come to the UK in need of safety and speak out for compassion, fairness and kindness. We achieve this by providing expert advice and casework, building the capacity of refugee community organisations, and working with allies across society to change government policy.  

Our vision for refugees to be welcome to live safe and fulfilling lives contributing to the UK has never been more urgent and needed. At the end of 2022 35.3 million refugees and a total of 108.4 million people were forcibly displaced worldwide and in need of safety, dignity and welcome. We are determined to secure public and government support for safe routes for all people seeking safety, and a fair, effective and compassionate refugee protection system.  

Now is an excellent time to join the Refugee Council. We are over halfway through our strategy period and this post represents the next phase in our investment in partnerships and collaboration. The strategy is ambitious about improving refugee protection by working closely with refugees and like-minded allies, united in our desire to create a just, fair and humane refugee protection system. It will also see us delivering direct services that improve people’s refugee protection journey through targeted advice and casework and strengthening and connecting Refugee Community Organisations with other service providers and advocates.
