We are a local independent charity with a big vision - we want to live in a community where unpaid carers get fully recognised, valued and supported.
We use the term ‘unpaid carer’ to describe anyone who cares, without payment, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, ageing, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support. There are an estimated 25,000 unpaid carers aged five and above living in Bath and North-East Somerset.
We provide trusted information, advice and support to unpaid carers of all ages, enabling them to maintain or improve their health and wellbeing, stay in control of their caring role and get connected with others in a similar situation to them. In addition, we work with the wider community to improve recognition and support for unpaid carers.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children/young people and vulnerable adults and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All applicants are subject to a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service check and at least two independent references.
