Opportunities available to help make life better for carers Carers Support Centre (CSC) Bristol and South Gloucestershire provides a wide range of information, advice and support services for unpaid adult and young (children) carers.  A carer is someone who provides support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse issues. All the care they give is unpaid.   Three out of five people in the UK will become carers at some time in their lives.  We currently have a vacancy in our Carers Support Team working to ensure that carers are identified, have access to appropriate support, are able to maintain their own health and wellbeing and continue with their caring role.  This role is available on a full-time (37.5 hours per week), or part time (minimum 15 hours per week) job share basis.  Please make it clear in your application form on what basis you are applying. Primarily you will support carers to complete a carers assessment and access advice and information. Publicising, promoting and contributing to the development of the service, in conjunction with the Senior Carer Support Officer, are also important aspects of the role.  The successful candidate will have significant experience of working within assessment processes, and of working with individuals needing emotional and practical support.  If this is you, and you would like to know more about this post, please call 0117 9392562 for further information.  For an application pack, please visit our website www.carerssupportcentre.org.uk where you will find a link to our vacancies at the bottom of our home page (preferred option please).   If you do not have access to the internet, please call our 24-hour answer phone service on 0117 9589973 or email: admin@carerssupportcentre.org.uk  Closing date:     Wednesday 7th November 2018 – 12 Noon Interview date:  Thursday 15th November 2018
