Lifelong Links is a new approach in the UK which aims to build lasting relationships for children in care. The Lifelong Links model uses on-line tools and face-to-face techniques for professionals to search for and find family members and other adults who care about the child. This network is then convened at a family group conference (FGC) to make a life-long support plan with, and for the young person, which then becomes part of their care plan.

A three year trial has already begun in seven authorities in England and two in Scotland (Edinburgh and Glasgow). Lifelong Links will be rolled out in West Lothian in year two of the trial and subsequently to other authorities. The trial will be independently evaluated.

We are recruiting one full-time and one part-time Development Officer to work, primarily, with Edinburgh, Glasgow and West Lothian local authorities.

You will have led or managed projects, trained practitioners and be an experienced, senior social worker and/or family group conference co-ordinator.

Location: These will be home based roles, preferably in or near Edinburgh or Glasgow (will include some travel across other sites in Scotland and to team meetings in London).
