I’ve been a parent Carer for over 25 years. I am currently caring for my adult son, who has both physical and learning disabilities. Previously I have spent many years involved in various parent carer schemes offering advice & signposting and/or emotional support. I am currently a Carers Ambassador for both Forward Carers and Carers UK. I am keen to help all Carers as I think it is essential that we are all aware of our rights and that we are able to easily access the support we require. I have a particular interest in the support needs of Parent Carers of young adults aged from 18-25 as the transition to adulthood can be a difficult time for both the Carer and the cared for.
