Purpose of the Post

The post will involve leading out, managing and implementing a reform initiative that is part of a Service Reform Programme within Carndonagh region funded through the Service Reform Fund (Genio). The Service Reform Fund (SRF) has been established to support the implementation of reforms in the Disability Service in Ireland. The SRF provides resources to re-configure existing services towards more person-centred, cost effective approaches in line with government policy.

The post holder will be responsible for the coordination of the transition of service users attending JCM Carndonagh and Milltown House to a modernised, person-centred service that is aimed towards community inclusion and active citizenship in line with New Directions policy. Service users are due to move from a congregated setting to homes in the community and therefore an ideal time to review their day service provision, their PCPs and explore how they could be integrating more with activities within their new community.

The post will require mentoring and capacity building amongst staff, families and services users as well as conducting regular review procedures with management to ensure a collaborative approach and a smooth transition for all parties involved in the process of implementing this new model of service delivery.

The Transition Coordinator will also provide support and guidance to staff in the establishment of natural supports, development of valued social roles and the formation of circles of support for service users with minimal support needs aiming towards the reducing reliance on paid staff and time spent in the day service.
