Paula Wood is the Outreach Carer Support Worker at Inverclyde Carers Centre and her role is to identify and support the hidden Carers in Inverclyde. This will be achieved through community based activities and events, inculding the 12 different surgeries she holds over a month, right across Inverclyde (See below).

Paula will provide information, advice and support to Carers. She will also support Carers by providing opportunities for them to make links with their communities and to feel socially included. If it's just a listening ear you're after then Paula can help with that too.

If you are struggling to attend the centre or one of the outreach surgeries, a home visit can be arranged. Outreach can also provide stress management therapies in venues out in the community for Carers who wouldn't be able to access the service otherwise. Further to this we can also provide a sitter service to enable Carers to engage in community based activities.
