Charlotte tells us what inspired her to join the care sector:
“My main inspiration is my Uncle. He was a paramedic and I always enjoyed his stories. I would see him as a hero when he was in the local paper or when he was in action at the scene of an emergency. In 2012, he passed away. He received a service funeral from the London ambulance service and it was in that moment I knew my calling was in care.”
Charlotte is very passionate about providing high quality and safe care to individuals as well as providing the same high-quality support for the care team. Having worked across different agencies and settings, Charlotte experienced the highs and lows that Care Professionals, experience on a daily basis. This deeper understanding of the carer’s role means she can support both in the field and their general wellbeing.
