In our new podcast “Objects”, Charlotte Armitage is diving deep into conversation with seven people – all with experience of care – about the objects that define some of the most important moments in their lives.

Episode 4 – Carmel Jacobs

In sum, I am a former wrestler, current Educational Psychologist who is married with 3 wonderful Labradors and a wonderful husband. I grew up in Kinship Care and lived with my Gran from a young age. Involvement in Who Cares? Scotland has supported me to understand and embrace my Care Experienced identity. I am now a member of the Who Cares? Scotland Board and there is nothing I am more passionate about than advocating for our vision of a lifetime of equality, respect and love for Care Experienced People. I believe that everyone has a unique contribution to make to this world. As an Educational Psychologist I work to support children and young people develop socially and emotionally healthy ways of coping with their life experiences and overcoming barriers to learning. I am committed to taking ownership of my role in ensuring that all members of our Care family are provided with the support and encouragement they need to realise their full potential and lead happy and fulfilling lives.
