Future Pathways is the expression of the Scottish Government’s commitment to ensuring survivors of in care abuse or neglect have support to lead healthier, more fulfilled and independent lives.

The first alliance in Scotland, Future Pathways is a partnership of Health in Mind, Penumbra, the Mental Health Foundation and Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership. Future Pathways is funded by the Scottish Government.

The Support Coordinator plays a key role in building trusted relationships with in-care survivors and facilitating access to resources, services and activities that meet each person’s individual needs; forging new links and developing innovative approaches in partnership with other professionals and organisations.

We are now seeking a Support Co-ordinator to serve older adults. With substantial experience of working within and across services relevant to older adults, you will also be experienced in the fields of mental health, trauma and in using outcomes focused assessments.

Passionate about the principles of person-centred support, personalisation and collaboration, your strong organisational and prioritising skills will be complemented by excellent written and verbal communication skills, alongside good listening skills. Knowing how important wellbeing is to resilience, you will prioritise self-care and hold boundaries in all areas of work and encourage others to do the same.

You will require a clean driving licence and access to a car, since travel throughout the area will be expected, for which a standard mileage rate will be paid.  Flexibility in working hours will also be expected in order to meet the needs of people accessing the fund.

You should be a member of the PVG scheme.
