At DCC we believe that Dementia Carers Count. We are working for a world where all family and friends taking care of someone with dementia feel confident, supported, and heard. We provide free online and face-to-face courses for unpaid carers which are designed and delivered by healthcare professionals and aim to help carers develop skills and build confidence to navigate the highs and lows of caring for someone with dementia.
We have a number of exciting opportunities for passionate care professionals to join our small team delivering services to family carers of people with dementia. As a member of the team, you will support our vision to deliver innovative support and learning opportunities on both face to face and digital programmes of service delivery to people across the UK.
Whether you are already in a similar role with experience of training and coaching or are a skilled healthcare practitioner with specialist knowledge and an understanding of dementia, DCC can provide the opportunity for you to share your professional skills and knowledge to help family carers maintain their own well-being whilst looking after a person with dementia.
We are an innovative, energetic charity that places real emphasis on providing a great service to carers. We have both Senior Specialist and Senior Practitioner posts available.
