Sam has been a Youth and Community Worker for eleven years and has worked with young people in lots of different settings. She has not been a young carer herself but does have the experience of looking after her two, very energetic, small children and dog. When not working Sam enjoys shopping, seeing her friends, going out for meals and catching up on Glee. She loves anything purple, dancing and chocolate, lots of it!
Plan one nice thing each week, that's just for you!
Ewan is qualified in Youth and Community Work, and has worked in various youth projects and advice and listening services. Some of his specialist subjects are cruise ships, young carers' issues and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but he's happy to talk about pretty much anything, really. He is a staggering 34 years old and proud of it. He's just over 6 feet tall, probably drinks too much coffee, likes all sorts of music and is very fond of monkeys.
Don't chop onions in an unventilated room. It'll only end in tears.
Susannah has worked with children and young people in a variety of settings. She has also worked with adults with disabilities and their carers. Susannah has one child and has spent the past five years studying so understands how difficult it is to study and care for someone at the same time. Susannah loves swimming, reading and eating jelly babies (though not all at the same time) and believes you canít watch too much Spongebob Squarepants.
If you're going to get locked out of your house don't do it when you're wearing pink stripey pyjamas.
Tina is qualified in social work and has worked with a range of people, including young people and adult carers. She enjoys walking and playing football, much to her belly's delight given that she lives to eat. She believes that books are real places, her favourite author is Neil Gaiman. Tina checks the post several times a day, always hoping for a magical letter to arrive.
Your melody is unique, it's unlike anyone else's. Play it loud and play it proud.
