Ian is striving to expand the support offered to unpaid carers of people with dementia by utilising the experience and dedicaton that volunteers can offer. Support is offered via a telephone support line, 1:1 mentoring, and regular social events. Ian is a former carer himself and understands the huge pressures placed upon unpaid carers.
Ian has worked for MCF in the past leading on the Caring and Cosy project which raised awareness amongst carers about energy efficiency, and offered money saving advice and guidance. Ian has volunteered with numerous charities over the years in positions where support and guidance was offered to people during times of crisis.
