Job description

Do you want to make a difference for families with disabled children in Wales?

Contact is the UK charity for families with disabled children. Charity number 284912 (England and Wales). We support families, bring families together and help families take action for others – whatever their child’s disability or medical condition. We firmly believe that with the right support, families with disabled children can overcome the challenges they face, take control of their futures, and focus on what matters: being together and growing together. 

We’ve got a fantastic opportunity for someone passionate about making a real difference to families caring for children with additional needs in Wales.

Your role

As our new parent adviser you’ll  join our wonderful team in Wales as part of our Building Resilience Project.

In this part time, home-based role, you’ll have the opportunity to support and mentor parent carers, helping them develop their skills, knowledge, and confidence to make decisions that are best for their families. You’ll also help create and deliver well-being workshops for parent carers to empower, inform, and reduce their stress and help increase their confidence so they are able to access the benefits they are entitled to.  And you’ll work in partnership with money advice organisations across Wales, to set up referrals for parent carers to make sure they get all the financial support they need.

What we’re looking for

  • Experience of working with and supporting families who have disabled children in Wales.
  • Ability to support and mentor parent carers to develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence to make decisions that are right for their families.
  • Experience in creating, facilitating, and delivering workshops
  • Good organisational and administrative skills
  • Knowledge and experience of the issues and concerns that affect families who have disabled children e.g. leisure provision, education, respite care.
  • Knowledge of issues relating to maximising income, accessing financial support, benefits, and other financial issues.
  • Good communication, time management, and networking skills.

The role is home-based and can be done from anywhere in Wales, but we have a preference for candidates living in the following counties: Wrexham, Flintshire, Denbighshire, Conwy, Gwynedd, Powys, Newport, Monmouthshire, and Cardiff.

We welcome applications from parent carers who have lived experience of caring for a child with a disability or medical condition and wanting to take a step back into paid employment.
