Jennifer Smithson

Senior Support Worker

I provide 1:1 support to adult and young carers.  I also help to plan and run groups and activities for young carers, which provide them with much needed respite from their caring role.

I believe that carers need a voice and like to use a person-centred approach to my work, providing them with a safe space to talk about their needs and concerns.  I encourage them to become actively involved in decision making, enabling them to feel they have an element of control at a challenging time of their lives.
