REACH Lanarkshire Autism was established in 2012 to bridge the gap in services throughout Lanarkshire.
As part of our ongoing commitment to create services for children and young people with Autism and their families, we are looking for a part time (job share) Neighbourhood Development/Activity Co-ordinator to work within the Whitlawburn and Springhall area of South Lanarkshire. Their role will be to engage with families and support them to access our services such as play therapy, peer support, sport and social activities. By having dedicated workers in the area, it will help to remove any barriers which families feel might prevent them from accessing additional support as well as raising additional awareness of the services that REACH provide in the local area.
Experience of Autism is desirable but not essential as it is your willingness and enthusiasm to support our families and enable them to access the necessary support that we are looking for.
