As a member Passion4Fusion’s Family Support Team and in partnership with other services and agencies you will support the development of practice, culture, and systems to improve outcomes for children and young people from the Black and Ethnic minority community who are at risk of experiencing care or who have care experience. You will also play a key role in supporting the delivery of the wider aspirations of “Keeping the Promise” to children, young people and their families in Scotland, through a transformation of the way care and support is provided.

You will contribute to the development of approaches and systems that deliver a supportive workforce by equipping everyone who provides a supportive role to children, young people, and families with the specialist knowledge required to respond to the unique and individual needs of families with migrant and refugee/asylum status.
