Responsible to a named member of the management team and working as directed by the management/co-ordination team, Carer Support Workers (CSW) work closely with staff, volunteers, carers and partner organisations to develop, plan and deliver comprehensive information, advice and support services for carers in Lanarkshire.
CSW’s are aligned to localities and specialist areas of work, and are responsible for engaging and supporting all carers at all stages of their caring journey. CSW’s work co-productively with carers to provide an effective, personalised and flexible service. Carers need to be able to maintain their own health and well-being and have a life alongside caring. Carer support conversations will identify carers own outcomes, strengths, needs and personal preferences. CSW’s role is to facilitate these conversations, listen carefully and plan (through an Adult Carer Support Plan) for safe, self-sustaining caring and resilience.
CSW’s develop and deliver activities that ensure that Lanarkshire Carers raises awareness of, identifies, engages and provides carers with information, advice and support that effectively meets their needs. CSW’s ensure that carers have access to a full spectrum of preventative approaches and a variety of opportunities and resources to support them in their caring role.
