Northamptonshire Carers is a local charity which this year celebrates it is 30th anniversary. We are seeking a Group Facilitator to develop a range of condition-specific support groups.

The Carer Support Navigator will offer carers assessments and support to carers in Northamptonshire in order to enable the sustainment of the caring role, reduce the impact of caring on carer’s health and wellbeing and to prevent crisis.  By ‘carers’ we are referring to informal carers who look after a friend or family member with a disability or long-term illness out of a sense of duty and compassion as opposed to a care worker who is employed in their role.
