Unpaid Carers' Champion In Dorset

It's estimated that over 11% of the Dorset population are unpaid carers, according to the 2011 census data. As a carer they could be looking after their partner, relative, friend or neighbour, for whatever reason they offer their care and support.

Earlier this year, Carer Support Dorset appointed a new Community Engagement Officer, Tracy Rowland, to make Dorset, a more carer-friendly community. Tracy has had a lengthy career in healthcare including working as a Registered Nurse and working with Public Health Dorset.
