Help us to manage the financial impact Covid-19 is having on our organisation. Our ability to adapt and evolve to support carers in innovative and flexible ways depends on our continuing financial resilience.
Our mission is to provide a range of services that recognises and responds to the individual needs of family carers and by giving them time to take a break from their caring role. Our Treasurer is retiring and we are looking for a new person who will be able to contribute to ensuring the continuing financial viability and integrity of the charity in meeting our purpose.
As a member of the Board you will work closely with the Chair, CEO and other Trustees on all aspects of the charity's financial management. You will work with and offer guidance to our Finance Manager to monitor the financial administration of the charity.
You will provide the rest of the Board members with regular reports regarding the financial health of the charity. You will ensure that all financial issues pertinent to the safe and efficient running of the charity are identified and shared with Board members, including budgeting and financial planning advice.

As a small charity, Covid-19 has thrown up many challenges and we have needed to review and change the way we deliver services in order to continue supporting unpaid carers. Our financial health is therefore essential.
With your help we will be able to continue to deliver carers breaks in people's own homes and a range of other support services within the local community. This will offer the support needed to enable carers to continue with their caring role for as long as they need it. We are looking beyond Covid-19 and planning for the future and your help input will help us chart these unknown waters together.
We are a small, friendly team which is willing to think outside the box to explore new ways of doing things to ensure the long-term viability of our charity. You could be part of this and have the opportunity to use your time to make a real difference in new and challenging times.
