Hi my name is Donna and I have worked for the Centre since it began in 2001 in various different roles.  This has allowed me to gain a wide variety of knowledge about different caring situations.

My current remit is to work with groups of Carers and I am supporting several at the moment.  The groups provide peer support and reduce social isolation which can become apparent when caring for someone.

Also within my remit is training for Carers which can be online or in conjunction with other local organisations.  Due to the new Carers Act (Scotland) 2016 which was implemented in April 2018, I am facilitating training for professionals who may support, or come in to contact with Carers making them aware of the obligation the new act has provided for Carers to be able to access information and support in their caring role.
