The job description is a broad picture of the post at the time of preparation. It is not an exhaustive list of all possible duties, and it is recognised that jobs change and evolve over time.
OPFS Edinburgh supports single parents with a range of issues that affect their ability to play a full part in the economic and social life of their communities. As part of that mission, the Edinburgh Lone Fathers Project helps single and separated fathers who might find it difficult to engage with mainstream services.
We aim to support fathers and children to enhance their relationships, reduce isolation by fostering peer support, offer opportunities to engage in outdoor and physical activities, and provide information and activities that help fathers learn more about low cost resources available to them and their children.
This post will include working on behalf of children who are, or are being placed, in the full-primary care of their father and ensure that the family have the support and skills to grow and develop to meet their full potential.
