£23,588 - £26,162 FTE     

 

At Carers Support Centre we provide a wide range of information, advice and support services for unpaid carers of all ages. Our Young Carers Service provides help and support to children and young people, their families, and professionals.

 

Young carers are children and young people, aged 8-18, who look after someone in their family who may have a disability, long-term illness, or be affected by mental ill health or substance misuse.

 

Young carers may look after parents, care for a brother or sister, or another family member; taking on adult level responsibilities, which can impact on their own health, wellbeing, education and result in them becoming social isolated.

 

We currently have an exciting opportunity to join our dynamic, creative and supportive Young Carers team, working to ensure that young carers are identified, have access to appropriate support and fulfil their potential. We are looking to recruit a passionate, committed professional who understands young carers unique needs.

 

The successful candidate will help to improve the health, well-being and safeguard the interests of Young carers adversely affected by their caring roles for family members in the Bristol area by:

  • providing individual tailored 1:1 support, and advocacy
  • taking a ‘whole family’ approach to delivering high-quality, effective and well-managed casework;
  • responding to referrals and carrying out statutory assessments,
