Rebecah had never heard of Carr Gomm. That soon changed when we started supporting her brother: and Rebecah was so inspired she decided to kick-start her social career with us!

“As a family, we have seen so many attempts to provide support to my brother over the years but Carr Gomm have been the ones to really make a difference. I have seen first-hand how devoted staff are to their jobs and to the people they support. I can honestly say that in all the time my brother has received support he has never been in a better place than he is at the moment.

“I have grown up around social care which led me toward being interested in social care as a career. However, I didn’t know what this would look like in practice. After seeing the way Carr Gomm staff were with my brother and how it made him feel, I knew that I wanted to do this for someone else: so I filled out an application form as soon as I had the chance.

“I’m delighted to say that I am now a relief support practitioner with Carr Gomm and have been for a number of months now. I remember how nervous I was on my first day but now I feel like I have been with Carr Gomm for a long time. I look forward to the challenges each day presents but also the opportunity to learn new skills and have new experiences.

“It is such a rewarding feeling knowing that I have helped someone in their day-to-day life, with tasks that may have been very challenging or not possible without my support. The knowledge, skills and experiences I am developing will not only help me in my career but will also help me on a personal level: and for me, this is really important.”
