Would you like to join an exciting and unique service for Armed Forces veterans with a vision impairment?

At Sight Scotland Veterans, our Linburn Centre is an activity hub to support the independence of armed forces veterans with sight loss. We are looking for a support worker to join our team of skilled and enthusiastic staff.

You will work with our members to develop ways to support their independence. This may be through implementing care and support plans or leading and creating activities. You will be expected to work with members both individually and in group settings, enabling them to gain the maximum benefit and enjoyment from their time in the Centre.

Applicants must have a commitment to working with people with sight loss to maximise their choice and control over their lives. If you do not already have an SVQ2 in health and social care, we will expect you to be willing to work towards this qualification.

Sight Scotland Veterans is the new name for Scottish War Blinded.
