Who we are

Carers Advisory Panel

The members of our Carers Advisory Panel (CAP) advise and guide us on our strategy and operational development. As current or former carers, they offer us real-life experience and perspective so that we can fine tune our services to ensure we offer the best possible services to carers of people with dementia.

We are honoured that our carers offer us their expertise, knowledge and wisdom.

Work with us

We are a small but passionate and hard-working team. We all believe strongly in our vision and mission, and we’re growing rapidly. We want to build our resources with the very best people.

At DCC we believe that Dementia Carers Count. We are working for a world where all family and friends taking care of someone with dementia feel confident, supported, and heard. We provide free online and face-to-face courses for unpaid carers which are designed and delivered by healthcare professionals and aim to help carers develop skills and build confidence to navigate the highs and lows of caring for someone with dementia.

Current vacancies

Head of Business Development

The Royal Surgical Aids Society (RSAS) operating as Dementia Carers Count (DCC) is the national charity dedicated to family and friends who are caring for someone with dementia. Our range of face-to-face and online courses provide an opportunity to learn, connect and develop strategies which support the wellbeing of family carers of people with dementia. All our services are designed and delivered by expert qualified health and care professionals.

There are over 700,000 family and friends caring for a person with dementia in the UK. DCC wants to reach many more of these dementia carers and provide vital and often life-changing support.

To achieve this, the Charity has identified the need to diversify its income portfolio beyond voluntary/charitable income and are recruiting for the new position of Head of Business Development

A new commercial income stream is emerging for commissioned and contracted services. This role will convert new leads into commercial contracts and purchasers of DCC services. Therefore, we will also consider candidates with transferable skills and experience who are currently in the private sector and looking for a career change into the charity sector.

We are eager to speak to individuals who are ambitious, tenacious, commercially astute and possess strong business development experience. The successful candidate will develop and grow the new commercial income stream, aiming to reach a target of £200,000 by the end of 2022 and £300,000 by 2023. He/she will also be responsible for securing corporate support in the form of donations or sponsorship.

This is a job for a person who has self-confidence, is a good networker and enjoys presenting and public speaking. This role is not for someone who feels more at home sitting behind the desk, we want someone who is energetic and works hard to secure meetings with senior decision makers and influencers.

He/she will work closely with the Director of Development and Income Generation to unlock further commercial growth and corporate support. The successful candidate will develop and own the corporate income generation strategy for Dementia Carers Count.
