Advice Sessions will be provided in specified schools in Edinburgh. The aim of the Service is to address financial and social pressures on families and individuals in order to promote a more stable and supportive family environment for the children attending the school – and thereby supporting pupil attainment.
The model of provision will, typically, involve a half day of direct client contact, followed up with a further half-day casework, per participating school. The direct client contact will usually take place at the school, with the casework undertaken at CHAI’s main office or other appropriate venue.

Employability support sessions will be provided in 5 Early Year Centres in Edinburgh - Moffat, Greendykes, Craigmillar, Fort and Granton. The aim of the service is to provide support to high risk families with children aged between 0 and 5 that are known to have a recurring need for support and face multiple barriers to moving out of poverty. The project will work with families with a long-established pattern of unemployment across generations who experience complex multiple barriers to employment.
With social distance measures in place, the Development Worker will contact families on the phone until it is safe to book appointments in the Early Year Centres and outreach venues. Casework will also be undertaken from home when possible.
The Development Worker will also be expected to contribute to the further development and extension of the “Early Years Maximise!” model.
