The Carers Network (also known as the Carers Forum) provides an opportunity for carers to have a say, air their views, let their voices been heard about services and support for carers in Pembrokeshire. This network exists for carers, voluntary organisations -who provide services for carers - and the statutory organisations to meet one another, share information and receive updates on development of services in the County.
The network meets at Carers Days, Parent/Carers Days, Carers Rights Days and any other days organised by the members of the Carers Strategy Implementation Group.
The Carers Development Worker, Nicole van Schie, at PAVS (Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services) takes the lead in planning, preparing and organising the days for carers, where a varied programme is offered to the network of carers. Nicole was the Young Carers Development Worker at PAVS, previous to the role as Carers Development Worker. Nicole has been self-employed as Independent Manager Advocate for several years and worked in a Camphill Community in Carmarthenshire with young people with Learning Disabilities and Mental Health problems. Before that she managed her own accountancy business in the Netherlands.
