**We are looking specifically for a male applicant due to the young person we would like to match you with**

The role of a Sova Independent Visitor is to build a healthy and child focused relationship with a young person who is in the care of the local authority; aiming to support them to grow in confidence, feel valued and thrive in their lives
IVs are usually matched to a young person according to a variety of considerations such as interests and hobbies
The IV will be fully trained for the role and will be supported throughout
The Sova team will make a match with a young person and organize an initial meeting where they can meet their young person, talk about themselves, plan what they would like to do and agree on when they would like to meet.

Key responsibilities/activities for an Independent Visitor:

• Meet with their young person, as directed by the project, (with project staff and or/any referring agency)
• Create a positive relationship between themselves and the young person
• Contribute to the young person’s development and confidence
• Assist and advise the young person in developing skills and appropriate attitudes that will assist them in achieving the goals in their life
• Encourage and motivate the young person to make positive changes and encourage their personal development (In liaison with the project, the referring agency and the young person concerned)
• Encourage young people to make positive use of local resources and activities, such as local parks and leisure centres
