Learning Disability Carer Consultants
Bernie Marshall and Majella Gorman aim to keep carers updated on Trust developments, help them to share their views and participate in the planning and delivery of learning disability services.
As carers themselves, both Bernie and Majella have first-hand experience of the challenges faced by those looking after a loved one with a disability. Bernie has over 20 years’ experience in community development and good relations while Majella has worked for the Trust for over 18 years in a range of roles including Carers Co-ordinator and Personal Public Involvement.
PPI FOCUS GROUPS AND REACHING OUT TO CARERS
Majella and Bernie have been writing to carers to introduce themselves and make sure their contact details are up to date. They would love to hear from any carers who want to stay updated on Trust developments or that they can support in any way.
