Carers’ charity needs five new members

A CHARITY is looking for new members to make up its committee.

The Association of Carers needs people to fill five spaces it currently has including the roles of chairman, treasurer and secretary.

The skills the charity is particularly looking for are financial, human resources, fundraising, marketing, PR, modern media and networking.

Jo Oliver, PR and fundraising manager, said: “We like to have one third of the committee being made up of carers if possible. We also encourage people who have a business background to join to help us strive to be professional in all that we do. We would like a mixture of people from BME backgrounds and some people (under 60) to keep things fresh.”

If anyone would like more information about applying contact the Association of Carers on 01424 722309 or info@associationof

The charity’s AGM is on Tuesday, September 6 at its new office building, HVA’s Jackson Hall, Hastings from 10.30am.
