EASPD is looking for people, who would like to become Family Consultants that support children with disabilities who fled the war in Ukraine
Job Title: Family Consultant
Project title: Emergency Early Childhood Development Support for Ukrainian Refugees (ECDUR)
Post location: Bulgaria
The European Association of Service providers for Persons with Disabilities (EASPD) is a European NGO active in 41 countries representing over 20.000 service providers for persons with disabilities. Its objective is to promote equal opportunities for people with disabilities through effective and high- quality service systems, in line with the principles of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
At the onset of the war in Ukraine, EASPD became active in view of supporting its members across Europe, especially in the border countries, to support the refugees with disabilities coming from Ukraine.
In July 2022, UNICEF and EASPD signed a partnership agreement to provide Emergency early childhood development action to support young children with disabilities, developmental or behavioural challenges or at risk of developmental difficulties affected by the Ukraine war.
Part of this project will focus on increasing the availability of trained Family Consultants who will provide ECD parental counselling, support children at risk and with developmental difficulties including disabilities through face-to-face and online sessions. It will also seek to increase the knowledge and competencies of families, especially parents from Ukraine, around early childhood support and other matters related to the development of children.
Under the project, 66 family consultants and 70 Peer Support Group Facilitators (UA / RU speaking) will be trained to provide early childhood development support, advice and referrals to families with children with disabilities, developmental or behavioural challenges or at risk of developmental difficulties, displaced due to the Ukraine war.
EASPD is therefore looking for 66 family consultants in Bulgaria from Ukraine to provide support to the families.
