Role

You will be joining our team based at the Fife Carers Centre in Kirkcaldy but as part of normal work will be expected to travel throughout Fife, particularly NE Fife and Levenmouth areas.

Your work will include providing a sensitive, person centred support service for carers of someone with a neurological condition, primarily in NE Fife and Levenmouth. You’ll be assisting carers to maintain their physical and mental wellbeing by providing carers with a comprehensive information service to enable them to make informed choices about their own emotional, physical and economic wellbeing. This will include giving one to one support to carers in order that they know how to access services helping them to develop self advocacy and, where necessary, advocate on the carers behalf. You’ll be supporting carers to identify and achieve their own outcomes using the Carer Support Planning process and providing carers with a benefit check, assisting with benefit applications and very importantly providing a listening ear for carers.
