Sarah’s background

image001

Sarah was born and raised in Salisbury, Wiltshire until 1993, when she moved with her family to the Shropshire countryside as both of her parents where born and raised in the Shrewsbury area. The move enabled my parents to care for their parents.
 
I have spent much my life looking after and caring for people.  My dear brother Thomas, who tragically passed away, was born with brain damage, and although not hugely debilitating, he required a lot of help and support from my parents and me as the oldest sibling.  I was exceptionally close to Thomas, and the thing that I was always thrilled about was for every percent that I put in; I got what felt like ten percent back!
 
I think my early to middle years of helping and playing with Thomas was the initial motivation to apply for and to work in the care or education sector. and I secured a post at RNIB Condover.  I found the work hugely fulfilling.  Although the work with the children was exceptionally challenging, it was never a chore, and the results that were possible with a little bit of care, thought and initiative were immense.
 
Sarah studied at Radbrook College before graduating and working in various care settings.
