Job Description

Carer Relief Companion volunteers provide companionship to person aged 16 or over who has a family member or loved-one who cares for them at home. This supports the carer to take a break from their role and have some time for themselves while giving them peace of mind that the person they care for is safe and has company in their home environment. The person who has support needs benefits from enjoying time together with a new person.

This is a great opportunity to make a meaningful difference to people with long-term health conditions or disabilities and their unpaid carers in Midlothian.

This role takes place for 2-4 hours per week, between Monday-Friday 9am – 5pm. A minimum commitment of 6 months is requested after training and induction is complete. To apply or find out more, visit https://www.nhslothian.scot/GetInvolved/Volunteering/
