Do you want to make a positive impact on the lives of children and young people with a learning disability and or Autism?
We have an exciting opportunity for 2 family focused, warm friendly, resourceful and empathetic individuals to join our newly extended Disability Service as Family Workers.
At Options Fife we have been providing person centred services to children and young people with a learning disability and/or Autism for over 25yrs. Our new family support workers will enhance the existing provision offered, enabling whole family support for children and families with complex learning needs.
As a Family Support Worker, you will offer emotional and direct practical help to families experiencing short- or long-term challenges. You will work with families, identifying areas where support is required, working with them to co-produce a family support plan which will be individually tailored to their child’s and family’s needs. You will agree outcomes and personal goals within the child’s plan.
The role of the family worker will be diverse and wide ranging and will include the following:
You will have experience of supporting children and families with a learning disability and Autism. You will have up-to -date knowledge of best practice and supporting tools and interventions.
Working hours will be 37.5 per week across 7 days between the hours of 7am and 10pm. The days and hours worked will be agreed with families within the family support plan. There may also occasionally be a need to provide additional supports out with these times and to be able to respond to crisis and family stress.
Please go to our website aberlour.org.uk/jobs where you can apply on-line.
