    Hours:  Part-time, 28 hours a week.
    Salary: £26,273 (FTE)
    Location: Kirkcaldy with working from home and in the community

     

    Fife Carers Centre seeks for a Carer Support Worker to join their team. You will be working as part of the Localities Carer Support Worker Team covering the Kirkcaldy and NE Fife localities.  Your case will be in Kirkcaldy but you will also be working from home and in the community.

    You will be based at the Fife Carers Centre in Kirkcaldy but as part of normal work will be expected to travel throughout Fife, particularly Kirkcaldy and NE Fife areas.

    Your work will include providing a sensitive, person centred support service for unpaid and family carers. You’ll be assisting carers to maintain their physical and mental wellbeing by providing carers with a comprehensive information service to enable them to make informed choices about their own emotional, physical and economic wellbeing.  This will include giving one-to-one support to carers in order that they know how to access services helping them to develop self advocacy and, where necessary, advocate on the carers behalf.

    You’ll be supporting carers to identify and achieve their own outcomes using the Carer Support Planning process and providing carers with a benefit check, assisting with benefit applications and very importantly providing a listening ear for carers.

    For more information/to apply, please visit Fife Carer Centre's website. The closing date for applications is 12:00 on Monday 17 October.
