    Created: 01/06/2024
    News/Events Category: Job Vacancies

    Post: Carer Support Worker (Dementia) 
    Hours: 35 per week
    Responsible to: Centre Manager
    Salary: £27,602.52 per annum
    Location: Fife Carers Centre, Kirkcaldy, with some home working and travel throughout Fife as appropriate


    Fife Carers Centre is a well-regarded and well-established organisation that has supported thousands of families and unpaid carers throughout Fife since 1995. The vision of Fife Carers Centre is to ensure that unpaid carers throughout Fife are valued, recognised, and supported to have equal access to a good quality of life that is not prejudiced by their caring role.

    The Role

    The post holder will be based at Fife Carers Centre in Kirkcaldy, but will also be working from home and in the community. As part of normal work, you will be expected to travel throughout Fife, particularly West Fife. Your work will include providing a sensitive, person-centred support service for unpaid and family carers.

    You'll assist 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 so that they know how to access services helping them to develop self-advocacy and, where necessary, advocating on the carer's behalf.

    You'll support 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.

    How To Apply 

    Full details of the post, and the application form, can be found here on the Fife Carers Centre website.

    The closing date for applications is 11.59am on Monday 17 June 2024. Interviews will be held week beginning 01 July 2024.
