Established in 2016, Future Pathways supports people who experienced childhood abuse or neglect while living in care in Scotland. Our vision is that each of the people we work with has support to live full, healthy and independent lives. Our innovative and trauma informed staff work together with each person to identify their needs and the specific outcomes they wish to achieve. Relevant support is then explored and put into place. This might range from help to access courses or training, purchase of material items or purchased services.
The Support Coordinator plays a key role in building trusted relationships with in-care survivors and facilitating access to resources, services and activities that meet each person’s individual needs; forging new links and developing innovative approaches in partnership with other professionals and organisations.
With substantive experience in of mental health, including trauma related work, you will be experienced in using outcomes focused approaches to assessment and support. Passionate about the principles of person-centred support, personalisation and collaboration, your strong organisational and prioritising skills will be complemented by excellent written and verbal communication skills, alongside good listening skills. Knowing how important wellbeing is to resilience, you will prioritise self-care and hold boundaries in all areas of work and encourage others to do the same.
You will require a clean driving licence and access to a car, since travel will be expected, for which a standard mileage rate will be paid. Flexibility in working hours will also be expected in order to meet the needs of people we work with.
You should be a member of the PVG scheme.
