Don't just take our word for it though, hear from one
of our incredible Support Workers, Cathy, who works
for Community Integrated Care in Glasgow...
Cathy joined Community
Integrated Care in 2002, marking
the beginning of a wonderful
career in the care sector.
Cathy explains what makes her
job so special: "It was my first job
in social care but I'd volunteered
for years with care services, so
I already had the desire to work
with people. I had my interview
on my lunch break, and by the
end of my shift I had the job!
"I've never looked back - it
was the best thing I've ever
done. After 15 years working
here, I still can't wait to come
to work every day. My mind is
always buzzing with new ideas
for activities and experiences
for the people we support."
Cathy's creative mind is
definitely put to good use, as
she also runs a social inclusion
group that holds regular trips
and events for the people
supported in Glasgow, and
thanks to Cathy, these are always
a day or night to remember!
"I'm so lucky in my job that I
get to see what's possible, and
then do it. Nobody puts barriers
in my way, I'm encouraged
to be imaginative, and I feel
really fortunate as I know not
everyone can say that."
Cathy sums it up: "This is so
much more than a job to me,
and I'd definitely recommend it to
anyone! It's not always easy but I
end every day knowing I've made
a huge difference to someone's
life and had fun doing it. How
many people get to say that?!"
