Transform Forth Valley is offering this post in partnership with Justice Services. The Tackling Inequalities and Improving Outcomes (TIIO) Project works with individuals aged 16+ years who reside within the Falkirk Council area and who are either on a current statutory order with Falkirk Criminal Justice Service such as a Community Payback Order or a Structured Deferred Sentence, subject to post –release supervision licences such as Parole / non-parole licence or referred via the CJS Diversion from Prosecution Scheme. Engagement with TIIOP is voluntary.
The TIIO Project is not a self-referral service; the target population are identified via Courts, Procurator Fiscal, and Falkirk Justice Service. The intensity of intervention and support offered by the TIIO Project is based on individual complexity and assessed level of risk.
Individuals subject to involvement in the Justice System tend to present with complex needs such as substance misuse, poor mental and physical health, homelessness, unemployment, disengaged from their families, are labelled by society as ‘offenders’, marginalised and often excluded from their own communities. As a consequence of their lifestyle and circumstances these individuals present with significant barriers, for example they are often hard-to-engage, have a distrust of authority and services, and may have had statutory social work involvement in their lives from a young age.
Further details of the role can be found within the Job Description and Person Specification document, which can be found at the end of the Job Advert.

We are looking for a talented, dynamic and professional Volunteer Manager to join our team in Scotland. The right candidate would be someone who can work flexibly and demonstrate an understanding and commitment to our organisational values.
