Our Strategy

Strategies exist at several levels in the Carers Federation – ranging from the overall business (or group of businesses) through to individuals working in it.

We believe in offering services that are sensitive to the needs of individuals and communities. The philosophy of the organisation is to go the extra mile in all aspects of its operation, to treat people with dignity and respect, recognising that “People don’t fit in boxes.”

The Board

The Carers Federation is governed by a Board of Trustees which ensures that the Federation conducts its business in the most effective way. The Chief Executive Officer and their Deputy attend Board meetings, but are not formally part of the Board itself.  The Chief Operating Officer is accountable to the Board for progress on the agreed programmes and use of resources. Trustees can co-opt up to four other individuals onto the Board to support our work. For more information on the Carers Federation Board click here.
