So long, farewell..
Hello out there to all the young carers, parents, siblings, service providers, schools etc etc who support the Young Carer program!
Sadly, the time has come for me (Lorna) to say goodbye to Carers WA and the young carers team...Goodbyes are never easy, but I have been given an awesome opportunity to actually work in the fitness industry whilst I study to complete my Cert IV in Fitness and my Diploma of Fitness in 2013.
During my time at Carers WA I have met some amazing, inspiring and wonderful people - young carers and their families, support agencies and colleagues here in the office alike. I have gained great inspiration and enjoyment from my role here and I'm honestly very sad to go, even though my new job will be a huge new adventure!
I will be officially finishing just before Christmas, on the 20th December (which is only a couple of weeks! Eeek!) Hopefully I will still pop in every now and then to volunteer on Young Carer activities (they are WAY too much fun to give up completely!) so I'm sure we will meet again.
Until then, keep smiling and have a safe, happy and healthy Christmas and New Year!
Signing off (sadly),
-Lorna(Your former YC Support Worker)
