A fantastic opportunity to come and join the Children 1st team in North Ayrshire
This is an exciting opportunity to be part of our Family Wellbeing Service in North Ayrshire. Children 1st alongside children, families, and partners provide early help which is easily accessible and non-stigmatising. The team and model of support play a pivotal role in supporting children and families impacted by adversity, ensuring high quality relationships with children and families remain front and centre.
Children 1st along with partners share a determination to act upon the recommendations from The Independent Care Review and deliver The Promise to children and young people. We are also determined that the full incorporation of the UNCRC means that children will have their rights respected in all areas of their lives and will have a real say in the way they are supported. If you share this determination, we would love to hear from you.
This is an exciting opportunity to be part of an innovative partnership between Children 1st and CORRA Foundation, working alongside families, building strong relationships, and achieving positive outcomes. This service is funded by the Scottish Government and will initially be delivered over a period of 5 years.
Our project builds on the voices of the recovery community, our extensive experience in supporting children and families impacted by substance use in North Ayrshire and enables us to increase our reach to more families who need us. We will do this through providing community-based whole family support that families can access easily in a non-stigmatised way, and at an early stage. This aligns closely with the Promise’s priority areas to provide a good childhood and to provide whole family support to those who need it, when the time is right.
