Paula Wood is the Outreach Carer Support Worker and Alison Bethel is the Sessional Carer Support Worker at Inverclyde Carers Centre and their role is to identify and support the hidden Carers in Inverclyde. This will be achieved through community based activities and events, inculding the 15 different surgeries they hold over a month, right across Inverclyde (See below).

They will provide information, advice and support to Carers. They 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 they can help with that too.
