Glasgow Supported Carer Service Recruiting


Could you open your home and your heart to help us support Care Experienced Young People? Could you work with them to give them the skills to flourish and to look forward to a future living independently?

Young people who are leaving care can feel scared or anxious about living alone and need someone who can provide support, guidance and reassurance.  Our Glasgow Supported Carer Service are looking to recruit Supported Carers across the city who can help these young people learn the practical skills required for adult life.

As a Supported Carer, you would offer the young person a spare room in your home and provide the day-to-day emotional, social and practical support that the young person needs. This helps the young person grow in confidence and to feel that they are not alone and to develop the skills they will need, so that they can live independently in the future. 

Our current Supported Carers tell us that helping young people leaving care prepare for their future life is very rewarding.  

The Support Carer Service is a valued service that offers an opportunity to support a diverse range of young people toward independence.  We are seeking motivated, caring people who are committed to supporting young people to maximise their potential.  We are looking to attract people who have a range of backgrounds, experience and life skills to be part of the team who have the best interests of young people at the core.

If you are interested in being a supported carer, have a spare room, space and energy to give to a young person that would improve their life outcomes.

You should also have empathy with young people and the issues they face, some of which can be challenging.  

Going forward you would be involved in an assessment process which includes a PVG check, medical assessment, local authority checks and references. You would be able to continue in employment while also undertaking the role of a carer.
