Support Worker – Young Carers Project (35 hours, although part-time hours would be considered for the right candidate) – to support young carers to identify their needs, develop a Young Carers Statement and provide any support identified by the young carer to ensure they are protected from undertaking caring responsibilities and tasks which are inappropriate, having regards to their age and maturity (Click here for job description).
