Carer Adviser and Facilitator (BAME Carers and Self- Directed Support Focus)

The Action Group seeks a highly organised, skilled and empathic person to join its dynamic carer advice team. We particularly welcome applications from people with experience of living or working within a Black, Asian or Ethnic Minority Community and people who speak another language in addition to English.


This opportunity is a result of an exciting new partnership between The Action Group and Lothian Centre for Inclusive Living. The project aims to ensure that Black Asian and Minority Ethnic carers can access Self Directed Support.

The postholder will co-facilitate regular peer-support groups and carry out 1-1 casework with carers (within Edinburgh and the Lothians). The post holder will assist carers to be active collaborators and decision-makers, providing both 1-1 support and group development activities.

Successful applicants will:

  • Demonstrate a strong ability to provide casework and carer-led support, to help carers
  • improve their situations.
  • Be digitally confident.
  • Show a good understanding of equality and diversity issues and a commitment to support people from marginalised groups.
  • Have a good understanding of the social care landscape
  • Have good facilitation skills
