Dorothy Carter – Pastoral Care Lead

Dorothy worked in the Warrington Borough Council Finance Department before a move to the Charitable Sector where she was a projects manager and then CEO at Age Concern in Warrington.

She has a great deal of experience of working with service users and carers and, during her time with Age Concern, trained as a counsellor. She also gained the diploma in British Sign Language.

She has been a member of Changes Plus since its conception and has been extremely active thoroughly enjoying the involvement with all the universities’ staffs and students. Having been a carer for many years, she feels that many types of Service User and Carer involvement should always be part of the curriculum in the many aspects of Health and Social Care training and development.
