Charity registered in Scotland SC034267
FVSC provides support on coping with sensory loss and how to manage on a daily basis. Advice and information is available on a range of services and equipment from the centre and from other organisations. Support from others who have been through similar experiences and a wide range of social activities including arts and crafts, exercise and lip reading.
FVSC is looking for a new Centre Activities Coordinator due to the previous post holder retiring. The Centre, a registered charity based in Camelon, Falkirk, has been helping people with sight and hearing loss, of all ages, across Forth Valley for over a decade.
The role of Centre Activities Coordinator is a vital one as it is at the very heart of the charity’s mission. FVSC is unique in providing social groups and activities to encourage people with sensory loss to build confidence and live as independently as possible. We also offer support and advice to carers and family members.
This is a challenging but very rewarding position with a well-established charity. As the number of people with sensory loss continues to grow, the provision of our groups and classes will also continue to rise in importance. Successful applicants will be enthusiastic, imaginative, willing to help in all situations and innovative, helping develop new groups and activities as well as building a large centre user base.
