This is an exciting opportunity to carry out an important role within an innovative partnership between Children 1st and South Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership.

The service is funded by the Scottish Government’s National Development Fund, to facilitate Family Group Decision Making approaches with kinship care families.

The role will require the promotion of effective communication and involvement of children and families within assessment, care planning and decision making. The successful candidate will be required to work in close partnership with Social Work teams to lead innovation and support restorative approaches to working with families.

While it would be an advantage, you do not require previous experience in the delivery of Family Group Decision Making but must show commitment to complete accredited training. This training will be provided.
