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 through 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 in particular will be working with children who are, or are being considered to be placed, in the full time care of their father and ensure that the family have the support and skills to grow and develop to meet their full potential.
