We need your help to identify where we can make the most difference to carers’ lives and become more sustainable in the way we run the charity. Carers Support Centre – Bristol and South Gloucestershire (CSC) is a local independent charity that supports unpaid adult and young (children) carers. In an increasingly challenging environment for carers, with social care and healthcare services facing difficult times ahead, it is more important than ever that CSC as an independent organisation champions and supports unpaid carers.

Trustees are responsible for the governance of CSC and play a pivotal role in working alongside the Chief Executive and Senior Management team to ensure that that the organisation achieves its aims and objectives. Trustees come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences and you do not need to have been a trustee before in order to apply. We would like to invite you to our ‘Get Involved’ event taking place during National Trustees Week, where you can meet some of our current trustees, find out what’s involved and how you can apply.

There will also be an opportunity to find out more about becoming involved in other ways too, if you decide that being a trustee isn’t for you. What level of commitment does being a Trustee require? There are a minimum of six trustee meetings a year with the possibility of some additional meetings. This commitment is likely to be a maximum of one day per month on average, dependent on the role. We can also offer support and development opportunities in a range of skills.
