Quarriers Shared Lives Family Placement Service was established in 1985 to support individuals being discharged from the long stay hospitals, mainly in West Central Scotland, providing both residential and family placement.

The family placement element of the service has a well-established record of providing and maintaining very successful family placements for adults with disabilities and complex needs. Many have remained in their family placement for more than 20 years and have become integrated into the carers' wider family and their local community. The service continues to attract new placements and there are now a number of younger adults in placement. In 2016, the service expanded when it assimilated a similar service, doubling in size. The combined service continues to provide high-quality placements, with good care inspection reports. We currently have 24 adults living within 22 family placements.

Quarriers has also developed its established fostering service to provide lasting foster placements for children and young people with a learning or physical disability or complex needs, with the first child being placed in January 2014. We have developed a highly regarded service reputation with good care inspection reports. The service currently has 14 children living with ten foster families.

The services are registered separately with the Care Inspectorate; together they comprise Quarriers’ Family Placement Service. We have our office base in Glasgow. The services support carers across the central belt of Scotland to provide high quality and lasting family-based care to adults and children with a learning or physical disability and/or complex needs.

The Grants Officer role will help to transform lives of people supported by Quarriers by writing compelling, concise and convincing proposals to, and managing relationships with, a range of funders, including governmental bodies, lottery distributors, trusts and foundations, in order to maximise income for existing and new Quarriers services. The role will also involve working collaboratively with the wider Income Generation Department to provide mutual support as necessary and to optimise opportunities for developing Quarriers' business through synergies between grants and the wider team.

Quarriers has a flexible working policy, where all Head Office staff have been working from home during the COVID Pandemic. Going forward there will be a flexible approach to a mix of working from home and working in our offices in Quarriers Village.

The successful candidate has a number of key objectives and accountabilities including:

  • Maintain an up-to-date knowledge base of relevant grant making opportunities and an understanding of the broader funding landscape, to ensure Quarriers can make optimal use of all relevant grant funding.
  • Work closely with Operational colleagues to encourage a steady pipeline of eligible and completive service proposals, rooted in the person-centered and outcomes-driven approaches, upon which to base funding applications.
  • Research, identify and prepare an agreed programme of proposals to a portfolio of funding schemes to meet fundraising targets and support operational priorities that are focused on meeting the expressed needs of the people supported by Quarriers and/or extending Quarriers services into new geographical areas.
  • Manage relationships with grant makers and funding schemes in order to maximise fundraising opportunities, and to ensure they have the information they require - both narrative and financial - to understand the progress of effectiveness of any grant they have made to Quarriers.

Please note that IT skills are required for all Quarriers vacancies.

The successful candidate must have a full driver’s license and access to own transport.
