Role

Role and Service Profile

Transform Forth Valley is offering this post in partnership with Falkirk Health and Social Care Partnership.

The Social Inclusion Project (SIP) supports people who use alcohol and drugs and have backgrounds of offending or other particularly challenging behaviour, to access existing services, referred by partner organisations. The Social Inclusion Project (SIP) model complements the work of existing agencies/services by supporting people to interact with services when their complex needs (such as substance use, homelessness, mental health illness, learning disability, welfare benefits issues, social isolation and / or family dysfunction) present barriers for their access to care. The collaborative approach between the Social Inclusion Project (SIP) and existing services is proven to deliver an effective means by which people can access services which they might otherwise struggle to interact with.

The 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.

The post holder will report to the Senior Project Worker and will work collaboratively alongside their colleague whom they job share this role with.

Further details of the role can be found within the Job Description and Person Specification document, which can be found at the end of the Job Advert.
