Who we are

Carers’ Hub Lambeth is an independent local charity based in Brixton. ​Our work stems from the fact carers often go about their roles despite the toll it might take on their own wellbeing, often having to make sacrifices that hamper their own ability to lead a normal life. Whether financial, educational or otherwise, we seek to limit the challenges that carers face in two key ways: by working with carers directly, and by influencing the local services and policies that affect them.


The role

​Offering your skills and time each month will give our fledgling organisation the boost it needs as we deliver our long-term strategy. Carers’ Hub is an independent local charity based in Brixton. Our mission is to improve carers’ lives in Lambeth through quality services and community engagement. We achieve this through four core workstreams: raising awareness of carers, influencing local policy through community engagement activities, improving carer wellbeing and connecting carers to each other and to support and training opportunities through our services.

Caring for a loved one, family member, friend or neighbour, can have a significant impact on all aspects of a carer’s own life. Our dedicated and passionate team work with carers to help overcome challenges around managing at home, finances, caring with confidence, education and employment, physical health and emotional wellbeing.

We would now like to add to our Board and would like to hear from you if you are keen to offer your time and expertise to support us. We are particularly keen to hear from you if you have skills in the following areas:

– Finance: accountancy, financial planning or budgets.

– Safeguarding: experience of managing or overseeing safeguarding processes and practices.

– Fundraising: writing applications or bids, or helping to raise funds

– Senior management experience in a charity

We are also keen to hear from you if you have personal experience of being a carer, although this is not essential for the role.

Meetings take place at our offices, in person, in Brixton approximately once every two-three months. They currently run from 4pm until 6pm and we value our Trustees being able to attend meetings in person. It is hoped that you will be able to contribute your time to help develop pieces of work outside of meetings depending on your skill set and availability.
