This Post is based within our Advice Team, in Edinburgh, and will operate as part of a ‘Maximise!’ project in partnership with Children 1st.

Advice Sessions will be provided in specified schools in Edinburgh. The aim of the Service is to address financial and social pressures on families and individuals in order to promote a more stable and supportive family environment for the children attending the school – and thereby supporting pupil attainment.

The model of provision will, typically, involve a half day of direct client contact, followed up with a further half-day casework, per participating school. The direct client contact will usually take place at the school, with the casework undertaken at CHAI’s main office or other appropriate venue.

The Advice Worker (Schools) will also be expected to contribute to the futher development and extension of the ‘Maximise!’ model.
