Glasgow City Council’s Young Asylum Seekers team provides a social work service to all unaccompanied young people who arrive in Glasgow. Young people arrive on an unplanned basis and require immediate assessment of need and suitable accommodation sourced. They are often trafficked into the UK and may experience trauma and poor mental health as result. Young people arrive with limited English and a considerable amount of work is carried out via online translation and interpreters. Young people also require support with claiming asylum. The post involves assessing and supporting young people on arrival, establishing them in appropriate accommodation addressing their immediate practical need and establishing financial support. Unaccompanied asylum seekers obtain immediate looked after status and require care planning under LAAC procedures. They are entitled to continuing and after care support and the successful candidate will undertake all the associated care planning tasks.
Membership of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups Scheme will be essential on taking up appointment. Please note successful candidates for the above position will be required to pay for their PVG Membership/or Scheme Checks.
