Richard, Support Worker

I have really enjoyed having the opportunity to support people in their own homes. I particularly enjoy promoting individuals independence e.g. helping someone with their shopping, assisting them to go swimming, attending health appointments and helping with house chores. I believe an important part of my role at Cartrefi is to be a friendly face.
Kim, Support Worker

I have found Cartrefi becoming a co-operative is a very innovative and important change. It gives all of its members a voice and ensures that everyone is equal. I think to embrace change, like this one, is positive.
