We are looking to recruit an experienced Family Support Worker to join our team based here in Alloa. This post involves working with our team, in delivering a variety of support services to young families residing across Clackmannanshire. Our trained volunteers and staff team help families with young children through challenging times. In Scotland, over 1500 volunteers support over 3500 families and nearly 6500 children each year through compassionate, confidential help to parents when they need us most.
The parents we support are struggling with daily challenges such as mental health illness, disability, poverty, domestic abuse, relationship difficulties, trauma, isolation and loneliness. We provide one to one support to families in their home and in the community. In addition, we provide a cluster of weekly support groups in Alloa, Tillicoultry and Tullibody. The successful candidate will provide tailored support to families in their own homes.
The successful candidate will hold a minimum level of SCQF Level 7 in a relevant field and show a commitment to ongoing personal and professional development.
This new role is supported by the National Lottery Community Fund and the Edward Gostling Foundation.
