The Carers Centre is a growing and forward-thinking organisation with ambition to support an increasing number of children, young people and adults who provide unpaid care for a family member or friend due to disability, illness, addiction, or frailty.

Funding from the Falkirk Health & Social Care Partnership has enabled us to recruit an additional two full-time workers to enhance the support provided by the Adult Carer Support Team in Falkirk. As well as providing emotional support and information, the successful candidates will review the effectiveness of any support provided to carers to ensure it is meeting the required outcomes.

Applicants will need to evidence an understanding of the needs and difficulties faced by carers and the importance of the support provided to them. As these posts will be home-based, candidates will also need to demonstrate initiative and the ability to organise their workload.
