Our Carer Support Workers provide one-to-one support to carers, facilitating carers groups, and undertake joint work with our partners in the NHS, Adult Social Care and the voluntary sector.
The successful applicant will be a skilled communicator with excellent IT and organisational skills. The ability to gain and maintain carers’ confidence is essential, as is an understanding of carers’ needs and rights.

Both posts are subject to an enhanced DBS check.

Care for the Carers is committed to valuing diversity and is an equal opportunities employer. We have a number of measures in place to support the carers in its employment including carers leave. As an organisation we are particularly keen to ensure that our staff reflect the diverse nature of the community in which we work. We value diversity and warmly welcome applications from disabled people, the LGBTQ+ communities and people from ethnic minority backgrounds.
We're recruiting volunteers and new trustees
We are recruiting a team of volunteers to make telephone calls to isolated unpaid carers as part of our ‘Carers in Touch’ listening service and to deliver social media for us. We are also recruiting new Trustees to join our board.
