Role

Transform Forth Valley is offering this post in partnership with the Robertson Trust.

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 post-holder will work in partnership with colleagues from local Councils, Social Work, Housing and Conflict Resolution Services, Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, NHS Forth Valley and Substance Misuse Services.

The post-holder will be primarily required to work from their specified location and will work flexibly within an agreed number of hours to maintain the most appropriate level of provision.
