Supported Living is a citywide service that supports service users with both personal and practical care tasks, alongside dedicated time during visits to facilitate social support including hobbies, activities and community links. By supporting service users to maintain their independence it can prevent an admission to longer term care.

The role requires you to have or to have the ability to undertake and attain a SVQ Level 2 qualification in Health and Social Care or equivalent, to meet the requirements of registration to the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC). We will provide support and meet the cost for undertaking this qualification. You are required to have obtained SSSC Registration within 6 months of employment.
Membership of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme is 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.
