Could you make a real difference to the lives of unpaid carers in your local community?

A carer is someone of any age who cares, unpaid for a family member or friend who cannot cope without support.

Crossroads Together are a charitable organisation who provide information, advice and support to anyone living with the challenges of caring.

As a Carer Support Worker, you will provide care in the home to adults and children to enable their family carer to take a break from their caring role. This could include providing one-to-one support for children and adults to visit the local community and attend recreational activities.

Providing family carers with a break gives them the opportunity to have a much needed rest, catch up on some house work, attend an appointment, or simply catch up with other family members and enjoy some time out.

You will be required to provide personal care, practical and emotional support, whilst helping individuals maintain their independence.

The role will involve working to individual’s person centred care plans and could involve support with medication, light domestic duties and supporting people in the community.

Successful applicants will be required to undergo an enhanced DBS check.

To ensure the safety and wellbeing of our staff and service users we request, as part of the recruitment and selection process for you to provide evidence of your COVID-19 vaccination status at interview.  If you have not yet had the vaccine, you agree to arrange to receive the vaccination to comply with the Terms and Conditions of the offer of employment made to you during this process. Cases will be examined on an individual basis and reasonable adjustment will be considered for exceptional circumstances.
