The Scottish Assembly has an exciting opportunity for four motivated, committed individuals to join our Assembly team.

Leading by example, you will be enthusiastic and pragmatic, give fair, honest views, build supporting, trusting relationships with people with lived experiences, provider organisations, and Health & Social Care Partnerships. Your role will be to help to recruit and enroll more people with learning disabilities and/or autism in your region. The aim is to give people with lived experiences a place to put forward what they see are priorities in their lives and in the communities in which they live to influence policy making both locally and nationally.

The Assembly’s overall aim is to establish the world’s first Learning Disability Parliament which upholds the voices of all people with learning disabilities and/ or autism in Scotland. It currently meets online every Friday and will meet once/twice a month in regional areas when we have regional leads and facilitators in place. The regions are split into Northeast, Northwest, Southwest and Southeast. We are currently recruiting a regional lead (who has lived experience) and a regional facilitator in each of these regions who will help to progress the vision of The Assembly.

The Assembly is supported to work by Values into Action Scotland.

Regional Facilitators will work together with Regional Leads to:

  • Facilitate local groups and workshops in their region of Scotland to hear peoples’ views and enable members with learning disabilities and/or autism to feed these views into appropriate structures, both locally and nationally
  • Keep members of their region abreast of local and national issues of importance to them
  • Create a regular gathering of The Assembly in their regions and be active in weekly national meetings
