Staff and Volunteers
Sue Chown, Centre Manager, and Alison, Deputy Manager, have had many years’ experience within the caring field and are fully qualified to deal with the many levels of disability which accompany a stroke.
They head a dedicated and experienced team of carers and volunteers all of whom contribute to the smooth running of the Day Centre. All staff and volunteers are DBS checked and all staff have up to date first aid training.
Volunteering can be very fulfilling
I have been volunteering at ICare since August 2014 having first been made aware of the Centre when my mother had a stroke. I was most impressed by their friendliness and positivity and how well my mother enjoyed herself. It seemed inevitable that I would eventually volunteer! So, one day a week, along with other volunteers, I enjoy the company of the clients and staff. We talk, we laugh, and we work as a team to help the clients enjoy their day and support and encourage them to realise there is a life after a stroke.
