Do you want to work in the voluntary sector? We have a range of exciting job opportunities and are recruiting now! 

These posts are full time and fixed term until October 2021, with the potential for extension depending on available funding. Secondments from organisations that support our work are welcome.

There are an estimated 850,000 people in the UK living with dementia, supported by thousands of unpaid carers. Many carers of family or friends living with dementia report that they receive insufficient support from health and socialcare services, leaving them feeling isolated, burnt-out and unable to look after their own well-being. The number of carers is set to increase over the coming years, so it is vital that carers are given the opportunity to speak up forthemselves and come together to raise their profile, voice their needs and influence better quality of care and support at all levels.

Our values drive everything we do:

Transparent – We will have the courage and resilience to remain dedicated to our mission and have the humility to consider alternative ways of doing this where this will lead to greater impact on improving people’s lives.

Tenacious – We will be upfront, open and honest with ourselves and others. to build trusting relationships, we will share our rationale for making decisions and taking actions even when this may be difficult to do.

Inclusive – We will always value the diversity of perspectives, experiences, knowledge, skills, cultures and beliefs that people have to share and contribute in the pursuit of our mission. All voices will be welcomed and all contributions recognised.

Empathetic – We will aspire to always understand the feelings of everyone we work with so that they feel valued and respected.

Law for Dementia Carers – Project Manager

Full time, fixed-term contract till March 2022

Do you want to help carers of people with dementia to understand and exercise their legal rights? The Law for Dementia Carers project is funded by the Legal Education Foundation and is a partnership between tide, Making Space and Manchester University’s Justice Hub. In the first year we raised awareness of carers’ legal rights and got feedback from them on their experiences during the pandemic. This information was used to influence the government’s six month review of the emergency legislation that introduced easements of the Care Act.  Working remotely, this post will lead the second stage of this innovative project to completion in March 2022, helping create learning materials for carers and for health and social care professionals. The post includes a half day per week to involve carers in a research project run by Manchester University, looking specifically at the impact of the Care Act easements on older carers during the Covid-19 pandemic.

We encourage anyone interested to contact us for an informal discussion; to arrange this, please contact Pauline Burke, Business Support Officer, on 0151 237 2669 or by e-mail at [email protected]
