Adult Short Breaks and Supported Living Network is based in Kirkwall and offers support to adults who have learning disabilities in their own tenancies as well as a short breaks service for those who live with families/carers in the community. This post will predominantly be based in the Short Breaks part of the service.
Working as part of an enthusiastic team you will have the ability to work as part of a team and on an individual using your own initiative. There is a sleep-in staff member for additional support that may be required on a need identified basis. You will adopt a person centred approach to deliver a high standard of flexible and responsive care to service users within the Short Breaks Service. You will provide support and assistance to service users to maximise and maintain their independence and to access community facilities and have an awareness of contributing to the Support Plan process.
You should have experience of working with people who have disabilities, be committed to the principles of social inclusion, re-ablement and have a good understanding of the agenda for change within disability services.
You should hold an SVQ 2 in Health & Social Care or other relevant qualification(s) to enable registration with SSSC or requirement to achieve relevant qualification(s) within 5 years of appointment.
