Founded by Carers in 1998 Capital Carers, formerly North West Carers Centre, is a highly regarded charity providing carer support to unpaid carers of all ages. Our Ethos is to provide unpaid carers with a range of high-quality support services which enable them to have some normality of life whilst carrying out their caring role. Our Vision is that all carers get the help and support they need to sustain their caring role.  Currently the geographical focus of our support work is North West Edinburgh.  We have a contract with City of Edinburgh Council to support Young Carers, under the age of 25. Our work with adult carers, which we wish to develop further, is supported by fundraising.

For further insight into our work visit our website at www.capitalcarers.org.uk

In order to support our development, we want to recruit a further two Trustees/Directors.

As a member of the Board of Trustees/Directors, our governing body, you will contribute to setting the long-term strategic direction of Capital Carers as well as providing advice and support to other trustees and the CEO.  Although we are ideally looking for specific skills and experience, we are just as keen to welcome the diversity of thought and constructive challenge of a “critical friend”. Personal experience of caring is also very welcome.  Areas of experience and skills of particular interest are:

  • Working with people requiring care or carers, of all ages
  • Management of care services
  • Fundraising
  • Finance
  • I.T.
  • Legal and employment

Our Board normally meets about seven times a year late afternoons or early evening either physically or on line. Trustees are not paid but reasonable expenses are reimbursed.

If you are up for the challenge and believe you can make a contribution apply with your CV and a covering letter to admin@nwcarers.org.uk .  We look forward to hearing from you
