We are looking for an experienced family support practitioner to join our team.

Every year, our highly skilled advice and outreach team supports 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, 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 parents and carers of neurodivergent children and young people, 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.
