VOCAL is the Voice of Carers across Lothian, a Scottish charity run by carers and for carers since 1994. We are looking for a Carer Support Practitioner to join the team at our busy Edinburgh Carer Hub.
The postholder will support carers to identify their personal outcomes and needs, and plan and access person-centred support for their caring situation, their health and wellbeing and their personal development, with a particular focus on accessing short breaks to meet outcomes.
Applicants will have a sound knowledge of health and social care issues, the impact caring can have on individuals, the needs and situation of carers and a demonstrated commitment to supporting carers.
Additionally, applicants must be able to demonstrate a good understanding of the range of supports which may alleviate the impact of caring and build carer confidence and resilience.
