Carers UK online awareness raiser



Could you help Carers UK to raise awareness of caring and the support available to unpaid carers on social media? 


What is an online awareness raiser? 

An Online Awareness Raiser helps raise awareness of caring and the support available to unpaid carers through social media, while also providing a voice for unpaid carers with assistance from Carers UK.


What will you get out of it?

You will be there for carers through your social media accounts, reaching those who may not realise they’re caring. As many carers seek help and advice online, this role is a chance for you to make a difference without leaving the comfort of your sofa.

You’ll also have the chance to develop your IT and communication skills along the way.


What's involved?

The skills you need

How  Carers UK will support you

As well as the Carers UK volunteering handbook, you will have regular monthly contact with the volunteer team to provide you with support and guidance throughout.


You will also have an invite to the monthly online volunteer meetup and access to the Carers UK Volunteers Facebook group.


Your time

This role is very flexible. You will be required to share the content sent in the monthly Online Awareness Raiser email but when you decide to do this is up to you. We do require all of our volunteers to report once a month on their activity.
