Tania joined the Board in 2019
Carers in Bedfordshire is an independent charity established in 2004 to respond to the needs of unpaid family carers in Bedfordshire. We are passionate about improving outcomes for carers of all ages and delivering a range of services to support carers. It’s an exciting time for CIB, with an ambitious strategy to build on our achievements to date.
Our Board of trustees has an important part to play in helping the charity to achieve its mission of supporting more unpaid carers to be recognised, respected and supported in their role. If you join the Board, you can make a real impact and be part of our success story.
