About Options Dundee

Our Options Dundee Service works in partnership with families to offer tailored packages of support to help families to stay together. The support we provide is based on the needs of the family and takes a variety of forms including supported morning and bedtime routines in the family homes and 1:1 sessions with children and young people to support them to access the community and a variety of groups we run.

This specialised service offered by Aberlour Options Dundee enables children and young people to grow and develop - accessing their local area, broadening their experiences and not just meeting their needs but supporting them to flourish.

The families we work with find our service invaluable - “I don't know what I'd do without them. I trust them, my child trusts them - we both feel safe when they're in the house…They've changed my and my child’s life”.

What we are looking for....

We are looking to recruit a Relief Family Worker to provide ad hoc cover when staff are on holiday or are off sick. Relief Workers are a vital part of our team, helping to ensure that full cover is available throughout the year.

Work is offered on a casual basis: Relief Workers are not obliged to accept shifts offered and Aberlour is not obliged to offer shifts. In return for taking on this essential role, you will work alongside a dedicated, supportive staff team and be offered valuable training and development opportunities.

You will provide needs-led, person-centred support to children and families with a learning disability, or who have an autism spectrum condition with complex physical, learning and/or emotional needs, which can include supporting the family at home, in their local community or in schools.

What we offer...

You will receive a planned and supported induction consisting of a varied training programme; including CALM training, Child Protection training and other training specific to the job role. You will be working alongside a highly motivated and skilled team to provide a personalised service for our young people.
