Ian - Family Links Care Volunteer

Ian and his wife Wendy volunteer and provide Link Care for a boy with learning difficulties. Our Family Link Service offers short break respite care to Cambridgeshire families who have disabled children aged 0-19. We link families to carers who can welcome the child into their home for overnight stays during the week and/or at weekends. Ian and Wendy really enjoy the little boys company, and seeing him develop each time he visits them. It provides the child's family some respite time so they can do some other things together, keeping everyone happy. Our Family Link Carers are a dedicated team who give their time to make a real difference to the lives of the children and families they support. We urgently need more carers like Wendy and Ian to help support this valuable service.
