Role

Deafblind Scotland is the specialist charity working with adults living with dual sensory impairment. Our ambitions are high for people with sensory loss, particularly those with dual sensory impairment, and we are therefore at the cutting edge of finding ways to support them to lead their most meaningful lives. The Carers Advice Project is a support service for carers, and those carers may themselves have a sensory impairment as well as or instead of the person they care for, in Fife, to access their rights so they can have a better quality of life and to reduce socio-economic and health inequalities. This post will also involve travel across Fife with some travel required to & from our office in Kirkintilloch.

Deafblind Scotland provides information & specialist knowledge in many inclusive forms of communication relied on by people with sensory loss including Braille/Moon, BSL/Tactile BSL, Deafblind Manual & Audio.

The project worker will work with the carers affected by sensory impairment within this new project which is part of our existing Connect2Support Programme. Overall ensuring the carers affected by sensory impairment, who are amongst the most disadvantaged in society, are provided with specialist support which enables them & those they care for to access their rights and navigate the systems and services that can improve their lives.
