Founded in 1996, we are a well-established, Angus-wide organisation based in Arbroath. Our vision is that anyone who looks after a family member or friend, in a caring role, in Angus, receives appropriate information and support to enable them to feel valued, supported and confident in their caring situation, and to have a life outside, or alongside, their caring role.
(A carer is someone who provides unpaid care by looking after family members of any age, including young carers aged 8 plus, affected by physical or mental health problems, disability, and frailty or substance misuse.)
The organisation is governed by a Board of Directors and is presently looking to recruit new members to bring a breadth of experience and skills to the Board, and to strengthen the Board in specific areas.
We welcome enquiries from applicants experienced in:
Angus Carers Centre’s Board of Directors currently sits eight times a year, including our AGM in September. Directors are also invited to attend our Business Planning Strategy events and joint sessions with our staff team.

Successful applicants will become part of a committed team of established Directors who provide organisational governance to a dedicated, professional and experienced staff team.
