Do you want to make a difference to the lives of family carers who have a relative with severe learning disabilities and behaviour described as challenging?

  • Do you want to influence policy and practice at a strategic level?

This is an exciting opportunity, ideal for recent graduates wishing to gain experience within a small national charity with a reputation for excellence.
