Working in South Ayrshire
South Ayrshire is a fantastic place to live and work, benefitting from a range of natural assets, coastal attractions and a vibrant community. We are fortunate to work alongside this amazing community and our valued third sector partners to achieve better outcomes for all.
People are at the heart of everything we do and the workforce of the Partnership is our greatest asset. Even in the most challenging of circumstances, our staff demonstrate their skills, flexibility and commitment to continue to provide critical services and empowering communities to start well, live well and age well.
Supporting staff wellbeing during the pandemic and beyond is a priority and we are constantly exploring ways to ensure we attract and keep the best health and care staff to South Ayrshire. We offer a range of opportunities for professional development and we strive to ensure South Ayrshire HSCP is an attractive and rewarding place to work.
Adult Social Care
We have a higher proportion of older people than the Scottish average, as well as significant economic inequalities which shape the way our public services are planned and delivered. We treat the unique makeup of our population as an asset and we place a real emphasis on supporting people of all ages to live life to the full, supporting people to live in a homely setting when they require social care support and providing support to people who care for their loved ones.
In South Ayrshire, we take an approach to adult and older people's services that is person-centred, empowering and builds on the existing strengths of the individual and the community. We promote independent living, choice and control, and aspirational support instilling an enablement and 'Home First' ethos led by our professionals (including social work and the Allied Health Professions).
We are continuously working to improve our services, having recently launched a new Reablement Service what we hope can be world leading, and we're currently working to develop a new Learning Disability Strategy - one of the only Partnerships in Scotland to do so.
