Carers UK
Across the UK today 6.5 million people are carers, supporting a loved one who is older, disabled or seriously ill.Our mission is to make life better for carers. We provide information and advice on caring, help carers connect with each other, campaign with carers for lasting change, and use innovation to improve services. 
Description

As a Community Connector, you’ll help Carers UK connect with carers and promote awareness of caring by distributing publicity material – such as leaflets and posters – in your local community. 

Duties

You'll make contact with community hubs and arrange to put up posters or leave information leaflets. Your local supermarket, library, GP surgery, faith group or gym would be a great starting point! We'll give you more tips on how to get started in your Volunteering Pack.

You'll identify smaller local charities that support people with long-term conditions and supply them with Carers UK publicity materials. 

We also require you to keep us informed about what you've been up to, feed your achievements back to us and let us know where you've been distributing materials.

Who will the volunteers be working with?
The Volunteering Team will offer you support with the role.
Training
We'll give you all the tools you need to get started - your Volunteering Pack will include a Volunteer Handbook plus tips and guidelines on getting out there for the first time. We'll also deliver the publicity materials directly to you, as well as cover your travel expenses.

Time commitment

This role is very flexible. Our only requirement is that you can offer a minimum of two hours volunteering a month.
Application deadline

This organisation is one of our community partner organisations.

Like all volunteer recruiters we work with, they have signed up to our service standards, agreeing to abide by our policy on partnership working to keep you safe and supported whilst you volunteer.

You’ll never be out of pocket for volunteering through us – with in-London travel expenses to and from your volunteering guaranteed.

In addition, the team here at Students’ Union UCL Volunteering Service is here to support you throughout your volunteering journey – you can get in touch with us at any time.
