We are a small committed team who work closely together to ensure the smooth operational running of the charity. Here is a short biography on each team member:
I will be stepping into the role of Charity Director as of 1st July. I joined the Association of Carers in September 2014, as the Charity Administrator, since then I have worked in a variety of different roles, including Services Co-ordinator, Volunteer Manager and Operations Manager. I have an ILM Level 4 Management qualification. In my spare time I enjoy walking, yoga, gardening, music, eating out, Reiki and travel.
I joined the team in June 2015 as Charity Administrator. I have previously worked as an administrator for a community education project and an IT tutor. I enjoy reading, computers, walking my dog, and knitting.
I joined the team in March 2016 as a coordinator and have recently taken on the role of Volunteer Coordinator. My role is to recruit, train and support volunteers in their roles. In my spare time I enjoy doing Crossfit, travelling and spending time with my children.
I work at the Association as a Services Coordinator which involves matching families with volunteers across my area of Hastings and Rother.
I have recently joined as a very part time Community Worker providing respite breaks to Carers. I am greatly enjoying this having spent nearly 20 years supporting older people and carers through projects within the Charity Sector.
I love walking by the sea and in the beautiful Easy Sussex countryside, creative writing, travelling, the theatre and spending time with my family. I also very much value living close to my 5 year old Grandaughter which has given me the opportunity to experience all the wonderful different stages of her life so far
I joined the team in April 2018 as Events and Marketing Coordinator. My job is to organise and promote events that support, celebrate, and raise awareness of the amazing work that unpaid carers do. In my spare time I am a musician, screen-printer and milliner, and an avid horror film fan!
I joined the Association in February 2019 as a Services Coordinator which involves matching families with volunteers across my area of Eastbourne and High Weald. I previously worked with the Independent Living Service in East Sussex. In my spare time I enjoy walking my dogs and spending time with family and friends..
