Hi, I am Karen Pollock and I have been supporting Carers within the Carers Centre for around 4 years now. In my new role, I am a Transitions worker. This work focuses around Carers who are looking after people with additional support needs aged between 14 and 21. Carers in this category can find it 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.

I will also be inviting Carers to come along to information sessions where various local agencies will be on hand to offer advice on their services as well as providing one to one support.
