Carers in Bedfordshire supports unpaid family carers of all ages across Bedfordshire. In December 2016 we launched a new Memory Navigation Service to give telephone support to people worried about their memory, living with memory loss or a diagnosis of dementia, and their carers.
We have over 8,000 carers registered with us to receive support. We help carers through a wide range of services, including carer groups, monthly carers’ cafes, our Carers Lounge in the local hospitals, and a wide range of activities for young carers looking after a parent or sibling.
We are looking for experienced, empathic, self-motivated individuals to fill the following roles. If you have experience in working with people, are a good listener, have experience of supporting individuals/families affected by illness, dementia or disability, are passionate about helping carers and would like to work as part of a committed team working hard to make a difference here in Bedfordshire, we would like to hear from you.
