Older People Active Lives (OPAL) is a local charity with a strong reputation and track record of providing a range of impactful services and activities for our older people and their carers. We work in the rural areas of West Cheshire, with a small team of staff and around 200 volunteers. We are working to reduce social isolation and loneliness by running social activities and providing support at home, all with the aim of enhancing people’s health and wellbeing. Meeting people and having fun is what we are about. Our full range of services can be found at www.opalservices.org.uk.

We have recently expanded our Carer Support Service due to the increasing number of carers who are supporting relatives and/or people with dementia across rural west Cheshire. Through a programme of well organised events and activities held across west Cheshire our aim is to meet the increasing needs and support of the carers and the people they care for.

We are looking to recruit a second organiser to work in an established small team of staff and volunteers to deliver this service. Alongside our existing organiser you will drive forward and develop our support of unpaid carers of older people across west Cheshire.

Ideally someone who has knowledge and experience of working with people living with dementia; you should be well organised, a good communicator, able to engage with a wide range of people in a supportive and empathetic way, be computer literate and have use of a car.

If you are someone who like to help improve the lives of others, and you are interested in this post, please email morag.hutson@opalservices.org.uk for an application form.
