We are a Christian and community based charity that seeks to empower local volunteers, predominately from the church, to engage with those most at need. Working hand-in-hand with Children’s Services we link children, young people and families with local volunteers who can offer them help and support.
The Family Support Manager is a key staff role which involves working with families referred by a Local Authority and facilitating support from volunteers recruited from the local church and community. Your responsibility would be to work with the team supporting families across Perth and Kinross.
You would be involved from initial referral through to official end of formal support, including risk assessment of a family’s situation, identifying goals, matching and introducing volunteers, providing on-going mentoring and support to volunteers and deciding when outcomes have been achieved. Your objective is to help support families navigate challenging circumstances through connecting them into local volunteer based, sustainable support.
The role requires experience of working with vulnerable people and groups, and knowledge and application of safeguarding principles and processes. It is an incredibly exciting role where you would have the privilege of seeing how the simplest of actions, often from dedicated volunteers, really can bring hope and transformation to families and care leavers.
You will be part of the wider Scottish team which is a thriving, innovative team, dedicated to empowering volunteers to make a real difference.
