We are looking for a motivated individual, able to work to their own initiative as well as part of a team, to join us and develop this project into an effective community based asset. Candidates should possess a can-do attitude and the skills and experience to work in a sensitive yet effective way with recently bereaved clients.
Your role will be to provide emotional support within a bereaved client's home and within the community. This will be to support them to develop emotional resilience in order to promote independent living and to increase social activity.
The role may also involve supporting clients to complete essential tasks relating to the death of a partner/companion. For example, this could be relating to attending appointments with banks or in changing details with utility companies.
Alongside 1-to-1 support, the Ripple Effect will also develop group sessions for clients to access on a long term basis. This will act as both an ongoing support as well as a means of encouraging clients to take an active role in their community by accessing local facilities and wider community resources, in the spirit of social inclusion.
