Carer Peer Support Worker

  • Full time
  • £26,000

Glasgow North East Carers Centre provides supports and services to unpaid family Carers who look after a family member or friend who cannot manage alone due to illness or disability, including Young Carers and their families.

We are looking to recruit a Carer Peer Support Worker who will help us deliver, develop and expand our services to Carers, including Young Carers, throughout the North East of Glasgow.

The successful candidate will work to develop support groups across the North East area, both those for Young Carers, and those for Adult Carers. These groups will provide opportunities such as information and advice whilst allowing Carers to take a break from their caring roles and come together with others experiencing similar circumstances.

The post is a flexible 35hr working week as it includes evening work, and occasionally weekend hours may be required.

A driving licence and use of a car is essential for the post.

All successful candidates are required to join the PVG Scheme (or to have their membership updated).

This project is possible thanks to funds raised by Players of People’s Postcode Lottery
