About the role

Carers UK is the leading national charity, supporting, advocating for, and connecting unpaid carers across the UK.
With over 6.5 million unpaid carers in the UK and 6,000 individuals becoming a carer every day the need to support them is growing and urgent. Unpaid carers save the UK state an estimated £530 million each day and are vital to the friends and family members they support, as well as to the wider community.
The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically affected carers across the country. Our recent polling suggests that the figure for unpaid carers could now be as high as 13.6 million, with an estimated 4.5 million people literally starting to care overnight due to the impact of coronavirus on services and individuals.
This is an exciting time to join Carers UK as we enter our new strategic period, Vision 2025 taking us to our 60th anniversary. Rather than producing a detailed five-year plan we have developed an ambitious direction of travel, recognising the challenges of planning in the ongoing and uncertain environment created by COVID-19. We believe our flexible approach throughout 2020 enabled us to react quickly to the needs of carers, and by adopting a direction of travel, backed up with annual business plans, we will continue to meet the growing needs of carers.
Carers UK relies on voluntary income, our future plans will depend on unrestricted income to meet the growing need.
