Aberlour Child Care Trust has launched a new family outreach service, Aberlour Sustain, in the Perth and Kinross area. Aberlour, with support and funding from Perth and Kinross Council, will work with children, young people, families and local partners to develop a highly responsive service for children and families. Aberlour Sustain will deliver the support families need, when they need it, every day of the year. The aim of the service is to ensure that children and young people can continue to flourish at home, at school and in their local community.
Using personalised and person-centred approaches and principles, the aim is to ensure that children, young people and families are supported to build on their strengths, assets and interests to develop enduring capacity and resilience. We also aim to support local professional stakeholders and communities to coproduce solutions.
We are looking to recruit a dynamic and creative individual to deliver flexible, person-centred services with vulnerable children and families.
Due to service expansion we have a vacancy for a part time post, working 16 hours per week (over 2 days). This post is funded until September/October 2020, with the potential to be extended beyond this date.
Candidates should be enthusiastic, flexible and share our vision that collaborative early intervention and engagement is the best option for children and families who are experiencing difficulties.
Not afraid to test new ways of working, you will bring a fresh and collaborative approach in a way which responds to the needs of the families when they need it – this will include early mornings, evenings and weekends. You will have experience of direct practice within this field of work, including child/adult protection issues as well as having experience of working with children with additional support needs.
You will work within a variety of locations including the service base in Perth city, family homes, schools and community settings.
As an Aberlour employee, you will:
- receive a supported induction
- be part of a highly motivated and skilled team
- receive continual personalised support
- have access to a well-developed training programme, including Person Centred Planning and Graphic Facilitation
- receive excellent annual leave entitlement
