Values Into Action Scotland are recruiting 4 Regional Facilitators to work as part of The Scottish Assembly, a growing group of people with learning disabilities and/or autism who want to have more say in decisions that affect them locally and nationally in Scotland. This is a home based position and you will work 21 hours per week.

Leading by example, you will be enthusiastic and pragmatic, give fair, honest views, build supporting, trusting relationships with people with lived experiences, provider organisations, and Health and Social Care Partnerships. Your role will be to help to recruit and enrol more people with learning disabilities and/or autism in your region, with the aim to give people with lived experiences a place to put forward what they see are priorities in their lives and in the communities in which they live to influence policy making both locally and nationally.

The successful candidates will work together with the Regional Leads to facilitate local groups and workshops in their region of Scotland to hear peoples’ views and enable members with learning disabilities and/or autism to feed these views into appropriate structures, both locally and nationally. You will also keep members of their region abreast of local and national issues of importance to them and create a regular gathering of The Assembly in their regions and be active in weekly national meetings.
