The Carers Association in Sligo is urging carers across the North West
to join them in the fight for a better life for those in the profession. There are currently over 2400 carers in Sligo.
The organisation has unveiled its "One Voice" Campaign in the wake of
last week's Prime Time Investigates programme, which conducted extensive research into the effects of cuts on family carers. The programme found that 82 percent of carers have been affected by cutbacks in State services.
I have just completed a B.Ed. degree in St. Patrick's College and so am a qualified primary teacher. I also have 3 and a half years of experience in working with children with autism and other learning difficulties.
I am available to complete July Provision in the Leitrim area.
If interested please contact me.

RainChild has developed a 3 day water based summer camp for students with Autism in the area, thanks to funding of €5,000 from AIB Ballinamore. The funding, awarded under the 2010 AIB Better Ireland Programme, has allowed the children involved with the group to develop their life skills, communication skills and build self-confidence.
It also provided the children with the opportunity to socialise with their peers in a fun, supervised environment as they try new activities such as water sports and swimming.
