Why is Christine Supporting Carers?

“My background is in nursing and the voluntary sector and for twenty years I was a carer for a close family member.  Life was busy and incredibly stressful at times, and there’s no doubt it took its toll on my mental and physical health.

Making time for yourself and discovering relaxation is probably the most important thing you can do for yourself. There’s a saying, ‘you can’t pour from an empty cup’ and it’s true that if you don’t look after yourself then there’s nothing spare for others.

I have personal experience of caring and how stressful and overwhelming it can be and that’s why I am so pleased to be able to offer my support to the Carer Friendly ID Card.”
