CHAI is currently involved in the Scottish Government-led Universal Pathway Quality Improvement Practicum: Health Visitors & Financial Inclusion, which aims to add an effective pathway into financial advice for families supported by Health Visitors. The Financial Capability Worker will work alongside the Health Visitors in South East and North West of Edinburgh, providing income maximisation, welfare and debt advice, budgeting and financial capability support to expecting families and families with babies and young children who are supported by the Health Visitors. The worker will be embedded within the Health Visitors clusters in the two localities. As this is a new project, the Worker is required to develop it from ground up and to build excellent relationship with the Health Visitors and relevant stakeholders.
This post is based within CHAI’s Advice Team. The model of provision will, typically, involve a half a day of direct client contact, followed up by a further half-day casework. The direct client contact would usually take place at the Health Visitors clusters, at the family’s home or in community locations, with the casework undertaken at CHAI’s main office. With social distance measures in place, the Worker will contact families on the phone until it is safe to resume home visits or to meet elsewhere in the community. Casework will also be undertaken from home when possible.
