The Citadel has a long history of strong relationships with families in the Leith community. In the past four years, this has included the development of the Citadel Families Project, which offers a range of services to the parents/carers of children under 12 attending the Citadel, including 1:1 family support and a weekly Parents Drop In.

In the past two years, the opportunity has arisen – through the Scottish Government’s Pupil Equity Fund – to extend the Citadel’s positive relationships with families into local primary schools. As a result, the Citadel now offers a range of school based services to parents/carers in four local primary schools, including 1:1 support, themed workshops/courses and family learning.

The post holder will be responsible for developing a new family support service based in Lorne Primary School, as well as working alongside colleagues in Citadel based services for families.
