'One person caring about another represents life’s greatest value' – Jim Rohn

Care and Share Companionship is a community charity providing 1-1 and group support to older people over the age of 60 in the Kirkcaldy area who are living in isolation and loneliness. Our vision is to provide personalised, flexible companionship to older people, who we refer to as 'Friends.' We tailor our support to their needs and bring people together regardless of age or background, building relationships with each other and within their communities. We are committed to challenging social stereotypes regarding older people and believe they should feel valued and respected, and supported to be active members of their community.

Established in 2019, we are a young and highly respected organisation entering an exciting time of growth and expansion. We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and professional individual to join our small team and to play a key role in delivering and developing our service and coordinating our community befriending programme. In return we will offer a positive and flexible working environment and support for your own professional development.
