Sarah’s Story

Sarah has been a carer from a young age and has experienced that transition into adulthood, which has impacted her career as a project manager.

‘I would say that caring has definitely affected my career and my ability to get promoted. I’ve always had to accept temporary contracts to keep the flexibility I need.’

‘It’s like simultaneously being in a constant state of flight and fight: like being a paramedic, an emergency doctor, and a policewoman all rolled into one, I have to switch between skills and roles quickly and effectively without training or support or a holiday.’
