Carers in Hertfordshire is a well-respected, independent, carer-led charity, established in 1995. The charity works to ensure that all Hertfordshire's unpaid family carers are recognised, valued and supported in their caring role and have the opportunity for a life outside caring and can exercise a collective voice in the county. We support adult carers and young carers and provide information and support. We also arrange a variety of ways for carers to work closely and collaboratively with professional staff in a wide range of voluntary and statutory organisations to link our services and help those organisations to develop a carer friendly focus. 3 in 5 people will be an unpaid carer at some point in their life and 1 in 3 carers will have to give up work to meet the demands of caring. Although this unpaid care saves the NHS billions of pounds a year, it comes at a cost to the unpaid family carer - physically, emotionally and financially.
Carers in Hertfordshire is joining forces with Crossroads Care Hertfordshire South. We see this as a great opportunity for the future and plans for integration of services are well underway.
We are pleased to be an accredited Living Wage Employer. This means that every member of staff in our organisation earns not just the minimum wage but the Living Wage.
The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually, based on the cost living in the UK. It is currently £8.25 per hour for outside London.
We believe that every member of staff deserves a Living Wage. You can find out more about the Living Wage by visiting www.livingwage.org.uk
