Role

So why are we looking for a Parentline Project Worker?

Children 1st are developing a new and exciting way of supporting families in Aberdeen. We have a long history of working with children and families in the city. After a pause in 2018 we reviewed our purpose and role alongside children, families and partners. We have been building a new approach to help children affected by poor mental health and emotional distress. Children 1st along with partners share a determination to act upon the recommendations from The Independent Care Review and deliver The Promise to children and young people. We are also determined that the full incorporation of the UNCRC means that children will have their rights respected in all areas of their lives and will have a real say in the way they are supported.

You will work with Scotland’s national family support helpline service Parentline, to link remote support requests to Children 1st front line services and key partners as well as working remotely alongside families to develop, agree, and monitor support plans to achieve their identified outcomes and to work with other agencies to ensure that the child benefits from a team approach.
