MEET OUR TEAM
Working in partnership with service leads can sometimes be challenging but rewarding when you know you can make a difference to families. I love what I do, from signposting families to services who can support them to running fun activity days with families, each day is always different. I have worked previously in both Education and Social Care and managed the Independent Support Service in Cornwall helping families with EHCP support.
I am one of the founder members of PCC, when my daughter was 8 years old, and I am still participating in shaping services across Education, Health and Social Care. I also chair the Carers Partnership Board which links into many services and I ensure the voice of the carer is heard.
I am a Director of Parent Carers Cornwall because I want to be able to be a voice for parent carers, our members and those parents who are finding their way through the varying SEND pathways. To enable those children at the heart of our mission as parents to be the best they can be.
The reason I joined Parent Carers Cornwall was that I could have a voice but also be able to find out first-hand how I could get the best for my children. Many of us parents will be able to identify that if we do not stand up for our children for the provision and support that they need then very often it just does not happen.
Meeting with other parents, being able to speak up with regard to needs provision, reviewing policies and how that works out in reality are all things that are really important. And having fun too.
