Key Worker

Our Foundations Service is well-established in Edinburgh with over 15 years of experience supporting people into employment. This work is delivered on an outreach basis, visiting clients in their homes or in the community.

Working as part of a small team the Foundations Key Worker provides holistic, person-centred one-to-one support for people facing a range of barriers which prevent them returning to work, Many of our clients have recently been released from prison or living with historical trauma. Barriers can include:

• Homelessness

• Mental health

• Debt / poverty

• Experience of trauma

• Criminal convictions

• Low confidence

• Lack of education

Using an assertive outreach approach, the project aims to help people to remove or deal with issues so they can move back into work through workbased training and/or volunteering. Cyrenians requires all staff to be flexible in their approach and to display care, respect and a non-judgmental approach to clients, being prepared to work tenaciously and imaginatively towards successful outcomes.
