With Kids is a small but dynamic charity supporting vulnerable children and families. We have a base in Glasgow and Edinburgh and also work in a number of other local authority areas. We provide an early intervention service for children, aged 3 to 12, who have experienced significant trauma in their lives. We also offer social and practical support to their families.

We have been working in the Wester Hailes area of Edinburgh for the last 8 years supporting families and offering a wide variety of community development support. We have been successful in securing funding through the Aspiring Communities Fund with support from the European Social Fund to allow us to develop a Children’s Zone project across the whole of Wester Hailes and surrounding area. As a result we have a vacancy for an energetic community and family support worker to work closely with families in the area.

The purpose of this role is to lead the development of community support networks for children and parents/carers including the recruitment and support of volunteers. The person appointed will have a wide range of experience in community development and an understanding of the needs of vulnerable families.

The successful applicant must be a member of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme.
