Deafblind Scotland is the specialist charity working with adults living with dual sensory loss. Our ambitions are high for members and we are therefore at the forefront of finding ways to support people to lead their most meaningful life.
Deafblindness can be a devastating condition that can make daily life extremely challenging and as a result, many people with dual sensory loss become isolated. Our services can make a vital difference to their lives; enabling people to regain confidence, gain vital communication skills and re-establish social connections. Some people may acquire the loss of both senses where others may be born Deaf or with sight loss and lose the other sense as they move through adult life caused by conditions such as Ushers Syndrome or age related conditions such as Glaucoma.
We are seeking to recruit a Project Co-ordinator to work across several programme areas, supporting the Programme Leads to create and implement innovative approaches to improving the lives of people living with Deafblindness. This role involves working alongside deafblind people to facilitate their engagement, promoting a culture of empowerment and peer leadership. Working as part of a dynamic team, you will liaise with a range of stakeholders, delivering evidence-based monitoring and evaluation reports and co-producing and facilitating training events.
