Dynamic? Efficient? Motivated?
We need a new Area Manager to manage and develop our growing services for carers and people needing care at our West London branch. As a health or social care professional you will be responsible for overseeing our small team of managers who supervise our Care Support Workers. Every day will be different – from mentoring a new manager, to trouble-shooting a service delivery issue, to working with our CEO on a new service, to networking locally – your job will be diverse, challenging and very rewarding. You will become Registered Manager with CQC for your services.
With April upon us, we’re just one month away from a General Election where no one knows what the outcome will be. Seven million reasons to care, which refers to the number of unpaid carers in the UK.

Martin Cater, our Young Carers Support Worker, will be running in the Virgin Money London Marathon on 26 April 2015, raising vital funds for Young Carers.

The course is a gruelling 26 miles 385 yards long, passing through the streets of London from Blackheath to the famous finish line at The Mall.
