West Lothian Council are looking for two individuals committed to the work of Kinship who are passionate about making a difference to the lives of vulnerable families. West Lothian Council are focussed on avoiding the accommodation of children and supporting families to care for children safely within their own Kinship network. You’ll bring excellent relationship-building, communication, and organisational skills, as well as be able to work on your own initiative and collaboratively with partners. You will have proven experience of working with families, particularly those in more disadvantaged circumstances. You will be expected to provide Kinship Carers with emotional and practical support (including supporting contact), training, and peer-to-peer support and raise awareness of the work of Kinship. You will be empowering Kinship carers to work with other agencies, advocating and supporting them throughout.
You will be working in a busy and supportive Family Placement Team and contribute to kinship assessments alongside the social workers within the team. You will be involved in Looked After Reviews of Children’s, Children’s Hearings and any other relevant meetings.
You must have an HNC in Social Care & SVQ Level III
