Hi, I am Karen Pollock and I have been supporting Carers within the Carers Centre for almost 5 years now. In my current role as a Transitions Worker, I support Carers/parents of children with additional support needs aged between 10 and 19. This age range has recently been extended to include younger children, as the transition from primary to high school is just as difficult as the transition to adult services.

This work focuses around Carers who can find this extremely stressful trying to combine the care provided, while trying to access the correct support, which enables their child the opportunity to lead a full and inclusive life, and I can assist Carers throughout this process.
