Jennie started as a volunteer at Signpost 23 years ago and now divides her working days between two roles. She is a Wellbeing and Engagement officer (enabling carers to access relevant services and community-based activities to support them in their caring roles) aswell as a Changing Times Coordinator (supporting carers as they navigate difficult transitions along their caring journey).

Working closely with Stockport’s health professionals, Jennie provides additional support to older couples where both people are struggling with health problems. Part of Jennie’s role is to help identify hidden carers, working closely with GP practices and other health professionals in the borough.
