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 excellent candidates to join our growing and dynamic team of Carers Caseworkers.

The successful candidates 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.

We have opportunities available in both the City of Westminster and in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.  Please indicate your preference, if you have one, on the application form.  Please note we are unable to guarantee your preference if you are successful at interview but we will take your wishes into account.
