For 30 years, Suffolk Family Carers has provided information, advice and guidance to unpaid family carers of all ages across Suffolk to help them get the support they need to live fuller lives. We work to minimise the hardships and challenges that family carers face, raise awareness of family carers and ensure their voices are heard throughout Suffolk. The commitment of our Trustee Board has been essential in helping us to meet those challenges.

To ensure timely succession and equip Suffolk Family Carers for the next phase of its exciting journey, we are looking to appoint new Trustees who will add their skills expertise to the existing Board. The Board are collectively responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of Suffolk Family Carers thereby ensuring sound legal, financial and people management of the organisation.

We work with strategic partners and so we have identified the following skillset and key experience domains as key for the make-up of the Board:

  • Children and young people
  • Social care and health
  • Mental health
  • Fundraising.

We are looking for potential Trustees with a good understanding of family carers' issues (personal or professional) and an interest in the work we do.

If you are forward thinking and have the motivation, commitment and confidence to contribute to our Board we would be delighted to hear from you. The rewards for you would come from involvement with a much-valued charity with an excellent reputation and FAIR values (Family Carer Focus, Accountability, Integrity and Respect).
