Do you want to work with an ethical, supportive and values driven employer that offers good benefits and flexibility?
An award-winning small organisation celebrating our 20th anniversary this year, North Lanarkshire Carers Together are a carer led charity operating within the heart of North Lanarkshire. We are the commissioned organisation in North Lanarkshire providing Campaigning, Information and Representation of carers.
North Lanarkshire Carers Together was the first Voluntary Organisation in the UK to receive a National Award in the New Media Section of the Association of Social Care Communicators. We have contributed to the Carers Journey, to Carers Strategies in North Lanarkshire, to the reshaping care for older people agenda, a consultation resulting in Carers Health Needs Report, and helped implement locally, in our valued spirit of partnership approach - the enactment of carers rights in law within the Carers Scotland Act 2016 – which came into force in 2018.
Throughout this time and alongside this strategic work, we have also ensured that thousands of carers received sound and timely information and advice on their rights and how to access services to meet their needs and have tirelessly campaigned on their behalf and represented carers at various levels within the Local Authority, Health Board and more recently within Health and Social Care.
Community Solutions is an innovative, community led, health and social care investment and improvement programme for North Lanarkshire which is committed to building community capacity and support to help people live healthier and better lives and North Lanarkshire Carers Together are the thematic lead for carers within its programme of work.
