We are committed to positively supporting people to overcome the negative impacts on their lives of ill-health, poverty, inequality and isolation. We work to make a positive difference to the lives of people who are often excluded from society due to vulnerabilities including homelessness, mental health issues, physical health issues and social isolation. We provide care, support and employability services to over 1,000 people a year.
Linkliving, our values are at the heart of everything we do and we put the people we support first.

Our main aim for this job role is to find people with the right values, behaviours and attitudes to match our own.
LinkLiving's Edinburgh Service is a visiting housing support service, delivered by six area-based teams which work across Edinburgh. As well as enabling people affected by mental health problems to live as independently as possible in their own homes, we engage with a range of statutory and voluntary organisations to ensure the people we work with get the support they need.
Visiting housing support
We deliver visiting housing support to around 180 people in Scotland's capital who experience a variety of mental health problems. Our support includes:
We work from a recovery-based perspective, which means we enable the people we support to live a good life - as defined by them - with or without symptoms.
We use conversations and plans to help people identify their long-term ambitions and short-terms goals and develop strategies for achieving them.
We recognise the importance of the home as the base from which people can work towards recovery. We provide support in all aspects of maintaining a home, with an emphasis on developing people's skills to look after and sustain their home independently.
The role of communities
We also recognise the role which communities can play in recovery. We connect the people we work with appropriate sources of local support and with networks and organisations which deliver social benefits, including a sense of belonging, community and purpose.
Putting people at the centre
We appreciate that the mental health problems experienced by the people we work with can sometimes have a significant adverse impact on their lives, so we take time to help them to recognise, understand and manage their symptoms.
At all times, our support is flexible, person-centred and responsive to the changing needs of the people we work with.
We have an exciting opportunity for ambitious and motivated Support Workers to join our team and improve the lives of people supported by our Comely Green Service.

Working in partnership
Multi-agency working is an important part of the job. You will develop positive relationships with a range of partners, including the NHS (in the community and in hospitals), social work and voluntary organisations. By understanding the assistance, they offer and maintaining strong links with partner agencies, you will extend the breadth and quality of support available to the people we work with.
You will work as part of a team while managing your own workload and being a key worker for some of the people we support. You will take part in regular team meetings and receive regular support and supervision. You will participate in a range of learning and development opportunities to enhance your experience and skills and improve the quality of our service.
Using technology to deliver the best service
You will embrace technology to help deliver the best service we can to the people we support. You will be given a laptop and smart phone to access Carista, our integrated social care management system. You will use Carista to create support plans and risk assessments, record support, monitor outcomes and gather feedback from the people you work with.
