Young Carers Worker (x2)

The Carers Centre is seeking to recruit a full-time (35 hours) and a part time (21 hours) Young Carers Worker, who will join our young carers team to deliver the provision of group support, individual support, short breaks and a programme of health and well-being activities across Falkirk and Clackmannanshire.

The Young Carers Project is for young people aged between 8 and 18 whose lives are affected by a family member who has a disability, illness, mental ill health or an addiction. The aim of the Young Carers Project is to raise awareness of the diverse needs of young carers, create positive outcomes and provide time away from their caring role. The project also supports young adult carers aged 16-25.

The successful candidate will be enthusiastic, self-motivated with a commitment to ensuring children and young people reach their full potential. An understanding of the needs of young carers would be advantageous. The role will involve partnership working across Education, Social Care, Third Sector and Health. This role will require PVG Scheme membership.
