Care and Share Companionship is a community charity providing 1-2-1 and group support to older people over the age of 60 in the Kirkcaldy area who are living in isolation and loneliness. Their vision is to provide personalised, flexible companionship to older people, who they refer to as 'Friends.' They tailor their support to friends' needs and bring people together regardless of age or background, building relationships with each other and within their communities. They are committed to challenging social stereotypes regarding older people and believe they should feel valued and respected, and supported to be active members of their community.
Established in 2019, they are a young and highly respected organisation entering an exciting time of growth and expansion. They are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and professional individual to join their small team and to play a key role in delivering and developing their service and coordinating their community befriending programme. In return Care and Share Companionship will offer a positive and flexible working environment and support for your own professional development. Contributory pension scheme available.
