Ministry at the Margins is a key area of focus for SU Scotland. We are creating a culture amongst our staff and volunteer team consistent with God’s concern for the marginalised, seen throughout the entirety of Scripture.
This concern, we trust, develops a posture towards and alongside children and young people who experience marginalisation We have identified six areas in which young people can be marginalised:
· Additional Support Needs
· Relative poverty
· Affected by a family member’s imprisonment
· Refugee/asylum seekers
· Minority ethnic
Young people with ASNs access all our areas of ministry - schools, missions, holidays, school residentials, discipleship events, and yet we recognise that there is far more that could be done to see “every child and young person” engaged in SU Scotland ministry. This new full-time role aims to help us do just that connecting with staff and volunteers across the breadth of the organisation.
Who we are: Scripture Union Scotland's vision is to see every child and young person in Scotland exploring the Bible and responding to the significance of Jesus. We are a national charity, with around 100 staff and around 2,000 volunteers. Our activities take place in schools, outdoor activity centres, and churches.
We are seeking a full time Additional Support Needs Development Coordinator to join our Ministry at the Margins team, leading SU Scotland’s ministry in this area.

• Ensure appropriate resources are developed for use within ASN contexts
• Organising and delivering specialised events that train, resource and inspire different stakeholders

Who we are looking for: The successful applicant will have a passion for, have been involved in and have clear understanding and experience of working with children and young people with a wide variety of Additional Support Needs. A strategic and creative thinker, resource developer and trainer, you will be able to communicate confidently, sensitively and diplomatically, inspiring others, both SU Scotland staff and volunteers.
For this post, it is important that you able to demonstrate a commitment to SU Scotland’s ethos, working principles and vision. It is also an Occupational Requirement (Equality Act - part 1, schedule 9), that the post-holder is a committed Christian.
