Scottish Care are looking to recruit a Human Rights Project Worker to support a two-year funded project called 'Rights Made Real'.

Do you have human rights knowledge and experience?

Do you want to improve the experiences of those living with dementia?

Scottish Care (this link will take you away from our website), in partnership with Life Changes Trust and the University of the West of Scotland, wishes to appoint a Human Rights Project Worker to support Rights Made Real: a two-year funded project focused on actively promoting the human rights of care home residents living with dementia.

A range of creative and innovative projects are being funded which will benefit people living with dementia and show others how to make rights real in care homes. All partners in this project are committed to ensuring that older people, including those living with dementia, have a right to maintain strong connections with family and friends, with their communities and with the things that matter to them regardless of where they live.  They believe that people of all ages, circumstances and conditions have a life to live, the right to thrive and hopes and dreams to achieve.

Scottish Care are looking for someone with a strong background in human rights who shares a passion to join a small, committed team.

This is a part time post (3 days per week) for 18 months, hosted by Scottish Care and based between Scottish Care’s offices in Ayr and the University of the West of Scotland’s Hamilton Campus. However, it is anticipated that the post-holder will spend a significant amount of their time travelling throughout Scotland supporting the care homes involved in the project.

Salary: £25k FTE
