As an organisation we provide expert advice and information for carers, campaign for greater recognition and support for carers, and use our experience and expertise to help other organisations do more for carers.

Our vision is of a society that respects, values and supports carers.

Our Board of Trustees plays a vital leadership role in the work we do while ensuring the charity is equipped and governed effectively, establishing and monitoring strategy and ensuring we are true to our values and keep carers at the heart of everything we do.

We are now seeking to appoint up to five people to join our Board of Trustees, to steer us towards our vision of a world where carers are respected, valued and supported.

It's an exciting time to be part of Carers UK, we have set out our stake as to how we want the world to change for carers by 2021. Our Board is instrumental in ensuring we make the next four years and beyond really impactful for carers while fulfilling all our obligations as a charity.

We are particularly looking for a Treasurer and are also looking for people with skills and experience in the following areas: Finance; Digital; Marketing; Income generation; Current or recent experience of caring.
