About the job:

We have three types of service in our Lothian Area that Autism Practitioners can be based in.

Autism Resource Centre (Musselburgh)

Our day service offers individuals the chance to develop new skills and interests tailored to their needs, while enhancing their communication and social opportunities. Many of these activities focus on wellbeing, and may take place in the local community or service based.  

Housing Support and Supported Living (Dalkeith and Haddington)

Our supported living services offer up to 24 hour care and/or support. The emphasis is on the development of skills for independent living, recognising individual choice and aspirations and enabling people to be active participants in their local communities and beyond.

Outreach (Various locations throughout Lothian)

Our outreach support varies and depends very much on the needs and aspirations of the individual. An individual may need support to access social and leisure activities or to liaise with other agencies in relation to training, employment and social welfare support. 

About You:

It is not necessary to have experience of working within social care. What is more important is that you share our values and are looking to work in a job where they can be put into practice. Are you willing to learn and develop into the role, to build both your personal and professional qualities as you do? We provide outstanding training and ensure all our Autism Practitioners are supported and have the skills to deliver a quality service.

We encourage and welcome applications from people with lived experience of autism.
