Support for families and carers of people in Foss Park Hospital

Welcome to new staff member Una Heron

“I’ve recently joined York Carers Centre as a Carer Support Worker, working on the Pathway to Recovery project. This is a multi-agency project set up to improve the experience of being discharged from Foss Park mental health hospital, for both patients and families.

My job is to provide support to families and carers of people who are, or have been, in Foss Park, and to ensure the success of the project.

I am really looking forward to meeting and working with families and carers, the hospital staff, all the amazing people from York Carers Centre and those involved in mental health work across the city.”

Una joins Liz Stone and Anne Marie Black, also supporting carers at Foss Park.
