  • £25,000
  • North Lanarkshire
  • Closing 2nd June 2023

  • Advertised from 18th May 2023
  • 35 hours per week


We have successfully secured funding through The National Lottery Community Fund for a Family Support Worker to work on our Practical Assistance to improve Health and wellbeing (PATH) project and will be hosted and managed by North Lanarkshire Disability Forum (NLDF).

The project compliments and adds to existing local provisions by focussing one to one support for people who are worried about the cost of living crisis. We want to ensure they are better supported within their community and can access and manage support that maximises their assets and helps meet personal outcomes. We are looking for a strong communicator to strengthen our existing team in helping people through this difficult time by further developing our support system to those we already assist. These supports may be online groups, face to face in our office or at the persons home so you must be comfortable meeting disabled people and their carers from diverse backgrounds. The cost of living crisis is affecting everyone so often this will involve having conversations around practical and emotional issues about finances, you should be able to reassure and create a place to discuss the current climate and the issues for people including mental health, housing, employment, benefits and relationships. This role is to provide an opportunity for people to discuss and access practical support around cost of living issues in an informal way.
