The Scottish Assembly has an exciting opportunity for two motivated, committed individuals to join our Assembly team.
Leading by example, you will be enthusiastic, give fair, honest views, build supporting, trusting relationships with people with a learning disability or autism, provider organisations, and Health & Social Care Partnerships. Your role will be to help to recruit and enroll more people with a learning disability or autism in your region. The aim is to give people with lived experience 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 the Northwest and Southwest regions who will help to progress the vision of The Assembly. The Assembly is supported to work by
Values into Action Scotland.
