Carer with years of experience and knowledge
| I have been a foster carer for over three years with my family. I specifically have been a carer for children with a broad range of additional needs. I am currently studying to become a primary teacher and also have a degree in psychology. I think this has allowed me to have knowledge of child development which I have found to be very helpful when working as a carer. I feel through the combination of my knowledge, experience and positive personality, I would make an excellent carer.

Female Carer/Childminder - 26 years old - Experienced working with disabilities - Fully vaccinated
| I am an experienced childminder/carer living in Leith and I am able to travel to the surrounding areas. I have several years of experience caring for children and adults of all ages and abilities and enjoy thinking up new and creative activities to suit their individual needs. I have just completed my qualification as an Art Psychotherapist and my placements have involved working with both children & adults who have additional support needs. In 2019, I cared for a young individual with complex physical & cognitive disabilities and stayed in this role for two years. This required full personal assistance, supporting her with school learning during school closures and thinking up activities to add variety to the week. Additionally, I am registered with Disclosure Scotland for working with children and vulnerable adults. Having worked as a carer in a nursing home for several years, I have vast experience of caring for older people. I have been fully vaccinated for coronavirus due to my previous university placement within the NHS. I have a full driver's licence and am happy to travel, although I currently do not have my own car. I am fully available during the day and evenings, other than Sundays when I work in a ceramic's studio.

Childcare is what I love!
| All I have ever done is work with children. From when I left school I went straight and done my childcare training then I went on to private nurseries then to sick kids where I works with children with complex additional needs. I was child specific trained for each individual child. It was challenging but every day was different which I enjoyed. After 5 years I went on to working at the royal infirmary in the neo natal unit. Where I work now as have done for 8 years. I enjoy it but feel it’s my time for a change.
