Role

Transform Forth Valley is offering this post in partnership with Falkirk Health and Social Care Partnership and Falkirk Adult Support & Protection Committee. This is a test of change pilot lasting 2 years. The aim of this pilot is to support people living in the Falkirk area who are experiencing issues with self-neglect & hoarding.

Self-neglect is an extreme lack of self-care, it is sometimes associated with hoarding. People who experience self-neglect often decline help from others; in many cases they do not feel that they need it or can be overwhelmed by their circumstances and are often socially isolated. This often leads to crisis interventions following a significant deterioration.

This pilot aims to provide early, effective, and supportive interventions to those adults who are experiencing self-neglect and hoarding. We aim to provide early intervention to identify need to offer support and improve outcomes, by reducing health inequalities and enabling adults to realise their potential and be connected to resilient and compassionate communities.

This post holder will work directly with the service user to enable their access to an integrated pathway across universal services including the ‘Third Sector’ and wider Health & Social Care services. The service aims to tackle the issues associated with social exclusion by supporting the people affected to enable their engagement with community-based supports.
