After 20 years as a child-minder I moved to care in 2009 as a change in career, as it was always something I had wanted to do. For most people we visit we are the first face they see in the morning and I love going in with a smile on my face and putting a smile on theirs. The support from my team and local authorities is great – they are always there when I need advice. It’s a great job, every day is different and I love knowing that I am making a difference. I love my job!
