Young Carers Outreach Worker

Mid Powys (LD1, LD2 & LD6 areas)
Salary: £21,175
Hours: 36 per week
Fixed Term until 1st April 2019 (extension subject to funding)

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS 9am 27th September
INTERVIEW DATE IS 3rd October in Llandrindod Wells

This is an exciting opportunity to support Young and Young Adult Carers in the Llandrindod, Builth and Rhayader areas, building on the excellent work already established. The post is based at home. It requires significant time in the key areas with regular team meetings in Llandrindod Wells.

A Young Carer is someone under 18 who helps to look after someone in their family, or a friend, who is ill, disabled or misuses drugs or alcohol. Young Adult Carers are aged 16-25. Caring can be rewarding and Young Carers can be more mature, empathetic and responsible than their peers. However it can be a significant challenge to juggle the practical and emotional issues involved in looking after someone, with fulfilling their own needs and aspirations.

You will support Young Carers to enjoy a greater sense of wellbeing, supporting them to address personal challenges, build on individual strengths, develop social and supportive networks and have an influence on services.
