Role

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.

We currently have an exciting opportunity to join our dedicated team of workers who deliver information, support and involvement services for carers of all ages across Falkirk district and Clackmannanshire.
