PKAVS is a leading charity in Perth & Kinross, enhancing lives and connecting communities through diverse services in the areas of Carers, Mental Wellbeing, Minority Communities, Third Sector support and Volunteering. Every year, PKAVS enhances the lives of over 5,000 local people, helping them to overcome barriers and achieve their goals. PKAVS is also the Third Sector Interface for Perth & Kinross, supporting and developing the Third Sector and enhancing the Sector’s role in Community Planning.
With over 80 staff and 100 volunteers, PKAVS is a growing organisation with core infrastructure provided by PKAVS Business and Organisational Development teams, comprising Organisational Support (Third Sector Organisations & Social Enterprises), Internal Business Support and external Business Support functions.
PKAVS offers respite and support to unpaid carers through a number of different means. These include administering the Time to Live respite pots awarded to us from Shared Care Scotland and Perth & Kinross Health & Social Care partnership (H&SCP) and occasionally through the Carers Trust. Similarly PKAVS has become the Respitality (local carers centre work in partnership with hospitality providers who wish to donate breaks to carers) provider for unpaid carers in Perth & Kinross as well as being the organisation that helps develop and deliver the complementary therapies offered to carers. However it is equally as important that the information that is on the Carers Hub website is kept up to date and relevant and as many carer organisations as possible are encouraged to put their details on this website.
The post-holder will be expected to administer the areas of respite and support detailed above but will also be encouraged to develop these and other respite opportunities that will support unpaid carers in Perth & Kinross. This will include developing a bank of gift donator’s for the Respitality scheme and matching these gifts with carers, completing pre and post break evaluations for those carers granted funds from the Time to Live pot and assessing the impact these breaks have made, finding new ways to offer respite to carers that as yet we may not know are available.
Offers will be made subject to satisfactory references and eligibility to work in the UK.
