"The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members." – Coretta Scott King
For 160 years, Jewish Care Scotland has been working with compassion and care to create a strong community where Jewish values remain at the heart.
As long as there is a Jewish community in Scotland, Jewish Care Scotland will exist to create meaningful opportunities that improve outcomes for those within this small community. They will achieve this by empowering individuals to take control of their own lives; providing excellent, responsive, person-centred advice and support; and maximising opportunities for connection.
From humble beginnings in 1858 providing charity for the deprived Jewish community in Glasgow, Jewish Care Scotland now provides innovative, individual care across all 32 local authorities in Scotland. It also owns and operates a wonderful Day Care Centre in Glasgow’s Southside that allows it to deliver services in support of the vulnerable and wider Jewish community – social work support, one-off support, dispensing advice, providing long-standing care, operating a kosher food bank and running numerous special clubs.
Respect for Jewish culture and beliefs are at the heart of Jewish Care Support and allow its staff to operate with sensitivity to the needs of the people, family and carers it supports. This does not preclude those from outwith the Jewish faith from applying but living the organisation's values and appreciating Jewish culture is important.
Respect | Compassion | Integrity | Competence | Collaboration
Jewish Care Scotland keeps the spirit of its founding volunteers at its heart. The passion and dedication it has for supporting Scotland’s Jewish community is inspiring. Strong values underpin everything it does and these values are the commitment each member of the team has to each other as they strive to continue creating a strong community of support and engagement.
