Home-Start Glasgow North and North Lanarkshire is a vibrant community charity making a big impact on families in the local area. Our trained volunteers and staff help families with young children through challenging times. In Scotland, over 1500 volunteers support over 3500 families and nearly 6500 children each year through compassionate, confidential help to parents when they need us most.
The parents we support are often overwhelmed and may be experiencing challenges in their everyday lives such as with loneliness and isolation, poor mental health, illness, disability, multiple birth, poverty, domestic abuse, separation, or trauma. We provide both 1:1 (in person and online if preferred) support to families in their home and community, and groups if more suitable.
We are now looking to welcome a new Family Support Worker to our North Glasgow Team who are based in our Maryhill office. (Currently home-working due to COVID-19/hybrid working arrangement being considered). The successful candidate will provide tailored support to families in their own homes, as well as supporting volunteers to work alongside families.
The role is initially funded for one year.
