About The Carers Hub
Glasgow East End Community Carers is a registered charity which provides support to carers in the East End of Glasgow. The organisation has 2 areas of operation;
The Carers Hub provides ongoing support to carers via a range of services, activities and support.
Our Play-Sense play group is a group for parents and their pre-school children with disabilities. The group runs weekly for 2 hours in a safe, fun environment where both parents and their children will benefit from increased communication and play, being with others in a similar situation and parents will get a break from full-on caring.
Our Play-Sense group has been suspended due to staff changes and a physical move, but we are now keen to get this session going again. The Play-Sense group has been appreciated by parents who have told us that their children enjoy our messy play, sensory art and music sessions and benefit from our sensory room which they have access to at the play group.
Who Comes to Play-Sense?
Parents and their pre-school children who have a range of disabilities or additional needs including several with autism.
Our group has also been attended by those who are asylum seekers and from a range of different nationalities including African, Chinese, Korean and Polish.
Who we are looking for
We are looking for experienced, reliable childcare workers who enjoy working with pre-school children and would like sessional work on a Friday morning. Candidates must be committed to equality of opportunity and enjoy working with families from all backgrounds. Experience of working with children with autism and other additional support needs is helpful but not essential.
