Hi, my name is Alison Cloudsley and I started working at the Inverclyde Carers Centre in November 2017 as a Sessional Carer Support Worker.

In May 2018, I joined the Centre on a full time basis and now support Carers through a range of areas including the Short Breaks Project as well as hospital based Carer Support. I am based at both units within Inverclyde Royal Hospital as well as the Inverclyde Carers Centre.  My role is to support Carers to access core services through the Centre as well as the hospital discharge service. This includes supporting Carers who come through the doors of the Centre as well as those I meet through the hospital admission/discharge process.

In addition to my role within the hospital, I also co-ordinate the centre’s Sitter Service that can support Carers to access a regular break from their day-to-day caring role. Whether I am based at the Centre or within the Hospital setting, my role remains the same in providing guidance and support to Carers throughout the duration of their caring role.
