Salary £25,290 – £28,464 depending on skills and experience
We are looking for an experienced family support practitioner to join our team.
Every year, our highly skilled advice and outreach team support hundreds of families across Scotland, and numbers are increasing annually. Our Direct Help and Support services are available five days a week, with Family Advice Specialists on hand to help those whose lives have been impacted by the support needs of children and young people who are neurodivergent, and who may have learning difficulties, by providing emotional support and the right information. For those who require more direct support, our highly experienced outreach team works throughout Scotland, engaging with both families and the professionals in schools, social work, justice, and health to ensure that we really are getting it right for every child.
This is a key role for our organisation, supporting the parent /carers of neurodivergent children and young people who may have learning difficulties, and young people up to age 25, by providing information, advice and 1:1 support. The role involves telephone, SMS text and email communication, including Live Chat, and may include contacting professionals on behalf of families. This post may occasionally require weekend and/or evening work and very occasionally working elsewhere.
Closing Date for Applications: 5pm on Monday, 21st March 2022
Interviews will be held on: Wednesday, 6th April 2022
