Job Description

Spring into a new role!

We all need support, at times, with something.

Disabilities and abilities are not too different – they can be visible, and sometimes, they can be hidden. We enable people to better manage the challenges they face in their lives, by working with them to recognise and build upon their strengths. And often we do this by listening to them, really listening, and working out a plan of support to help. Read about our two opportunities below, where we have full or part time vacancies.

Glasgow Supported Living services – Castlemilk

We support a range of individuals who are as individual as you are; Keith, brilliantly funny, who is coming to terms with a disability in his later years; Gemma, who loves going to the bingo; Craig, who wants to reconnect with his family; Sarah, who wants to redecorate her home (but needs help with a budget). Our support is delivered anytime from a few hours per week to 24-hour support.

Understanding the role

These roles will involve different aspects of supporting people, including;

  • Social Support to ensure people have a valued role in their community
  • Medication Support to keep people safe with their prescribed medication
  • Personal Care to assist people to maintain their wellbeing, including supporting individuals to maintain their personal hygiene and to manage their personal appearance through assisting them with a variety of tasks such as support with bathing and assisting with continence care

Glasgow Integrated Mental Health Services – Citywide

“The service brought me back into the light. They are my safety net. I am doing much better now – it’s been life changing!”

Stuart found himself homeless following an incident with a neighbour. Living in temporary homeless accommodation is always difficult especially with a complex mental health issue. Stuart also found himself involved with the criminal justice system. He felt alone and lost without anything familiar in his life.

Through Carr Gomm support Stuart was able to reduce his reliance on alcohol as a way of managing his mental health, establish a way of budgeting his money he could cope with and find a home that suited his wishes and needs.

Carr Gomm support practitioners worked with Stuart and supported him to do all this by building relationships, and working effectively with the other professionals in Stuart’s life to coordinate responses to the various challenges he faced
