There are several ways that you can support the work of Carers Leeds.
Spread the word
Many people don’t recognise that they are a carer, and those that do may not know about the range of support we can give to them. You can help us spread the word by displaying one of these posters in your community or workplace.
Make a donation
You can make a one off or set up a regular donation via this link. If you’re a UK tax payer, you can also top up your donation by 25% through Gift Aid at no extra cost to you. Gift Aid is a government scheme allowing charities to increase the value of donations.
Volunteers are an important part of the Carers Leeds service – they enhance our work and as many volunteers have experience of caring, can be very supportive to other carers.
Carers and others with an interest in supporting Carers Leeds can help in many different ways. We offer the following volunteering opportunities:
Reception volunteers – help by welcoming visitors to the service – offering a drink and a chat if that is what the visitor would like
Newsletter volunteers – help by meeting once every 2 months to mail the Newsletter out to over 10,000 people on our mailing list
Information volunteers – help by keeping our information for carers up to date and relevant
Social event volunteers – help put on a range of different events for carers
People may be interested in taking an overall view of the service and help to manage the organisation by joining our Board of Trustees.
Carers are encouraged to become involved by joining our Carers points of view Group. This is a friendly group of carers which meets every 3 months with a serious mission – making sure that Carers Leeds delivers the best possible service to carers. New members are welcome.
Contact Carers Leeds on 0113 246 8338 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in joining Carers Leeds as a volunteer.
