This is an exciting opportunity to carry out an important role within an innovative partnership between Children 1st and South Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership.

The service is funded by the Scottish Government’s National Development Fund, to facilitate Family Group Decision Making approaches with kinship care families.
