About Carers ACT
Carers ACT is a not-for-profit organisation and registered charity that has been providing services and support to family and friend carers in the ACT and Southern NSW for 25 years.
We support connect & empower carers to maintain their caring role and Personal well-being.
We do this through providing practical support such as:
- Short term replacement care so that carers can have a break
- Educational workshops
- Social and therapeutic activities, and
We act as the peak body for Carers in the ACT and work with industry and government to make Canberra more carer friendly.We are also a proud member of the National Network of Carer Associations.
We are a Company Limited by Guarantee governed by a volunteer Board of Directors that meets every two months.We endeavour to ensure that, as a group, our Board holds complementary skills including:
- Senior Management / Governance
- Health / Mental Health / Disabilities / Aged Care /NFP
- Business Management / administration / development / Service Delivery
- Lived Experience as a Carer.
Due to the retirement of a Director we are presently seeking to appoint a Director with experience in Business Management or Entrepreneurship skills to join the Board.
We are a diverse and inclusive workplace. We encourage applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people from culturally diverse backgrounds and identities, LGBTIQ+ people.
