Do you want to make a positive difference to the lives of Young Carers in East Dunbartonshire?

We are looking for an energetic, creative and enthusiastic Young Carer Support Worker to help deliver positive outcomes for young carers aged 8-18 in person and 13-25 online. This will be done through one to one work and group activities under the principles of GIRFEC. The successful candidate will also be required to regularly liaise with local Schools along with other statutory bodies to provide a linked up service.

Initially funded until March 2019, the post will also have key responsibility for developing and piloting the expansion of online support through various social media platforms and website. With the aim of reaching previously ‘hidden’ young carers and widening peer support networks, your responsibility will include provision of information as well as creating (and moderating) online communities and website maintenance. It is anticipated that success of this pilot will help secure further funding.

Successful applicant subject to PVG membership.

Closing date 12pm Friday 3rd November and interviews will take place on Tuesday 14th November. Please send completed applications to
