About Caring Together

More than three in five of us will become a carer at some point in our life. Caring Together is an ambitious regional charity that provides emotional and practical support, information and advice to carers of all ages and their families, as well as opportunities to take a break from their caring role.

Our vision is of a world in which no unpaid carer is in crisis, isolated or struggling alone.

About the role

It is an exciting time to consider being part of our team. We are focussing on growth to reach more carers and have made considerable investment in our workforce.

As part of the Carer Communities team, you will deliver services to adult carers (including parent carers) in the community, including running groups, trips and events.

The successful candidate will have a background of either working with carers or in the community and be used to working in a ‘hands on’ role.

Key accountabilities of the role include

  1. Organise and facilitate peer support/breaks from caring for carers, including groups, trips and events for the carer, and where appropriate including cared for person.
  2. Co-ordination of volunteers working within the team, including formal and informal support.
  3. Working to budget to ensure spend is made in line with relevant KPIs and timeframe.
  4. Organising and facilitating carer information opportunities, such as delivering some presentations in a face-to-face setting.
  5. Develop networks with partner organisations to ensure that you are reaching as wide an audience of carers as possible.
