Pillar Kincardine staff and volunteers have a variety of qualifications and experience – in Social Work, Psychology, Nutrition and Dietetics, Community and Adult Learning, Music, Photography, Nursing and Health and Social Care. The qualified staff are required to keep their professional registrations up to date, and are encouraged to pursue professional development opportunities whenever possible.
Staff work alongside members to identify individual personal goals through recovery focussed interview and to plan how these will be achieved. They support members to recognise and recover their own skills and to establish what tools and networks of support they require to develop these further, with progress monitored through Personal Support Plans and regular review.
