We are proud to announce that we have recently secured new funding to expand our services for carers across Central London. We are now seeking an excellent candidate to join our growing and dynamic team of Carers Caseworkers.

The successful candidate will support this hidden army by providing a confidential listening ear and one-to-one information and advice, including carrying out carers assessments and creating individual support plans, tailored to each carer’s needs. They will also develop excellent working relationships with partner organisations, to raise awareness of carers’ rights and needs.
Based in our Westminster office, with significant work remotely in the community, primarily in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.
The ability to speak a community language would be advantageous.
