Become a trustee of Caring Together!
Do you want to help make a difference to carers in Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and Norfolk?
Would you like to shape the future of an ambitious regional charity?
Will you use your own experience in health or social care to make sure that all carers have choices?
Three in five of us will become a carer at some point in our life.
As we enter our 40th year we have an exciting opportunity to join our talented board of trustees to help realise our vision of a world in which all carers have choices.
Caring Together is a leading charity supporting carers of all ages across Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and Norfolk. We provide information and advice, run services in our local communities and campaign. We are proud to support more than 12,000 carers and their families every year, but there are an estimated 178,000 carers living in our region. And this number is rising.
We need your help to make sure that even more carers in our local communities receive the practical and emotional support that they need.
Caring Together operates within the health and social care sector to support carers, with our work directly influenced and affected by both national and local policy. We are currently commissioned to deliver services by both local authorities and clinical commissioning groups and are very keen that we engage effectively with the imminent changes that integrated care systems will bring to ensure the voices of carers are heard.
We are particularly keen for you to get in touch if you can bring current experience, expertise and knowledge from either a local authority or NHS perspective. We would welcome applications from clinicians and professionals who can help us improve the support for carers in Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and Norfolk.
