Hi, my name is Dionne and I joined the Wigan and Leigh Carers Centre at the end of May 2019. Previously, I have worked for the NHS for 11 years within health and wellbeing as a Health Trainer and Health and Wellbeing Training Officer, which involved arranging self-care training sessions for people who live in Wigan borough and supporting people to improve their health on a one-to-one basis. My last role involved working within the learning and development department as a Mandatory Training Coordinator, providing clinical training sessions for NHS staff and supporting staff to access e-learning using the National Learning System. In my current role as the Training and Support Officer for the Carers Centre I will be arranging training for carers, offering support to carers and arranging welcome sessions for carers visiting the centre. I am looking forward to contributing to improving the quality of life for carers and the people that they support.
