How did I become involved?
In the past I have been a carer to family members and know how difficult it can be juggling work, family, the caring role and where to go for help and advice.
Before working for The Carers Centre I was employed by 2 other charities also covering Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. I have involved the Carers Centre work in both of these roles , from having a stand at a health and well being event to the running of a carers craft group and information sessions.
Having worked in the field of health and social care for most of my career I have always felt that getting carers information out and involving carers is vital, Therefore when I had the chance to become one of the team how could I resist?
However I have now retired and cannot wait to start volunteering again.
