Could you represent the voice of carers and become a Carers Ambassador?

We want to recruit 4 new volunteer Carers Ambassadors to join our team of 6.  Ambassadors will play a key role in the functioning of Enfield’s Carers Partnership Board bringing their experience of health and care services.

What will the Carers Ambassadors actually do?

  • Represent either mental health, older people, physical or sensory disabilities
  • Work with Enfield Council and ECC to discuss and test new initiatives and ideas
  • Play a key role in helping us to communicate with carers
  • Act as a link to local communities and existing carer networks
  • Co-host carer forums
  • Attend meetings, forums and workshops
  • Carry out wider engagement and listening activities
  • Co-design communications materials and campaigns
  • Represent the voice of carers

** No qualifications needed **

All we ask is that you are a current or previous carer of someone who’s used services within Enfield.

An ideal Ambassador is passionate about improving services and support for carers, has great communications and engagement skills, and is able to take a step back from your personal views.

Enfield Carers Centre will help you understand your role, prepare for meetings and events. In return, we offer you:

  • Replacement care, if needed, for attending agreed meetings, forums and workshops
  • Recognition payment and travel expenses, paid monthly as a direct payment
  • Training
  • The opportunity to be part of a group which makes a positive difference to the lives of carers
