I would like to introduce Civil Service Local (CSL) Scotland’s latest network, aimed at assisting vulnerable adults in areas of multiple deprivation.
Following fact-finding discussions with the Third Sector we are now at the exciting position of recruiting like-minded colleagues in Scotland’s government departments to assist with our Vulnerable Adults Programme developing plans throughout Scotland the research suggested we could work with veterans and health services.
This fantastic opportunity to work with vulnerable citizens outside ‘the day job’ will give you the chance to build your communication, listening and influencing skills with different audiences linking to CS Local strategic objective three: build capability in civil servants through work with vulnerable citizens to improve their aspirations and life skills.
It will also build confidence and provide a view of the wider picture especially for colleagues who don’t have regular contact with their customers.
We have a wealth of skills, experience and enthusiasm within our various departments and the Civil Service is well placed in terms of locality to support Local Authorities and the Scottish Government in reducing deprivation and increasing the social mobility of our most vulnerable citizens.
This network has the potential to make a real difference within our communities. Working together, sharing our skills and expertise with vulnerable citizens will help improve their aspirations and life skills.
If this is for you and you’d like to join our network please discuss with your line manager prior to making contact with Lynn Hammell giving brief details of why you want to be involved and what you can bring to the network.
Hope to hear from you soon
