South Ayrshire

This is an exciting opportunity to carry out an important role within an innovative partnership between Children 1st and South Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership.

The role will require the promotion of effective communication and involvement of children and families within assessment, care planning and decision making.  The successful candidate will be required to work in close partnership with Social Work teams to lead innovation and support restorative approaches to working with families.
