Do you have what it takes to make a difference?

Would you like to do something different next Monday morning? To forget the never-ending 9-5 and make a real difference to someone's life? Or maybe you are already working in social care and want to join an organisation with values at its core?

Well this may be the opportunity you have been looking for.....

We are seeking to recruit a Family Support Worker to deliver this exciting and rewarding opportunity to work directly with families caring for a child/children with disabilities.

The Family Support Worker will work on a 1:1 basis with families, over a 6-8 week period, to develop a person centred, outcome focussed behaviour support plan. Some families may require a shorter or longer support period, but it is hoped that up to 15 families will have received individualised support throughout the life of the project.

This initiative is in place to provide support to parents/carers caring for their child with disabilities, funded until March 2019 through NHS Fife Carers Information Strategy Funding. The Family Support Worker will also deliver workshops for Parents and Carers. The workshops will offer person centred approaches to supporting children who have behaviour perceived as challenging.

Successful applicants will be able to demonstrate the following:

  • The ability to adapt your communication style in order to develop successful and enjoyable relationships with the people we support.
  • The commitment to work with individuals through their personal support plans to ensure people achieve their goals and outcomes and celebrate their successes.
  • A positive and flexible outlook to your work, and be able to work on your own and as part of a team.

Remember this is #morethanajob - it's the first step to you making a difference and beginning your career with an award winning charity with its values at its core.
