Work With Us
Do you want to help people be included and to live their best life?
Do you believe people should always be at the centre of the process, feel respected, safe and are included in the planning of their care?
Are you looking for an opportuity that is flexible and can fit around other commitments?
If so, you could be a Broker with The Community Brokerage Network.
The Community Brokerage Network is a Community Interest Company with an asset lock in place. There are no shareholders and no profits generated.
Working throughout Ayrshire, we work closely with people to help them access and direct the social care and support that is right for them. We do this by providing independent brokerage about Self Directed Support (SDS). Our model recognises that some people need more support than others, and our aim is to inform people of their options, giving them choice and control about the services they receive and how they receive them. We work with people to help them to develop plans on how this support will be delivered.
We also work with people who may not be eligible to access formal social care, to help them connect with their local and wider communities, creating opportunities for them to build new relationships.
Our brokers are offered peer support, training and development opportunities and the chance to work with a range of different people across Ayrshire, with varying levels of need. Our brokers provide independent information about Self-directed Support (SDS), helping people to understand the choices available to them, empowering them to develop their own skills and abilities and encouraging them to make their own decisions about the way they would like to receive or engage with support.
We help people who think they may require support to prepare for a Social Work Assessment. We enable them to plan support in a way that helps them live their best life. We help people to work out how, when, where and whom this support may be delivered by. We also help people to connect with other organisations and resources that may help them achieve their goals.
We firmly believe people are always at the centre of the process, that they feel safe, respected and are included in the planning of their care.
