We are looking for a Parent Support Advisor to lead the development of our Family Centre.

The successful applicant will work with our families to support, advise and signpost them in order to: 

  • Support children’s learning

  • learn strategies for positive parenting
  • understand the importance of school attendance
  • make links within the community
