Do you have a passion for ensuring people with learning disabilities live fulfilled lives? Do you want to help lead a community that values people for who they are and what they can do?
L’Arche Edinburgh is a community of more than 80 people with and without learning disabilities. It is a place of belonging where people with learning disabilities can live independent, yet connected lives. We’re looking for someone to join us as our Support and Care Coordinator, a post which requires registration with the Care Inspectorate and Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC). Our services, which support 16 people with learning disabilities, are dual registered under the categories of Care at Home and Housing Support.
You will lead a small supportive team of 4 House and Team Leaders. Together you will ensure that we provide and develop high quality person-centred care supporting the practical, social and spiritual needs of those who call L’Arche home. You will be joining us at an exciting time as we’re looking to increase choice for the people we support and explore ways that we can grow as a Community.
L’Arche Edinburgh is an ecumenical Christian community which welcomes people of all faiths and none. We are part of a global network of communities where people with and without learning disabilities live and share in life together, working for a world where we all belong.
Knowledge and experience in care or supported housing is a key requirement for this role, but we’re also looking for someone with an enthusiasm for our values and the ability to inspire others. You might be looking to step up as a manager or to use your management experience in a different way. If you are interested in being part of a mutually supportive and lively community, then we want to hear from you!
