We are thrilled to extend a warm and formal welcome to our newest trustee, Janet Robertson, whose extensive expertise adds a valuable addition to Dundee Carers Centre.

I am delighted to be a trustee for the Dundee Carers Centre. I am now retired from working life but was previously employed for 34 years by Dundee City Council, ending my career as Head of Human Resources and Business Support. I was also involved at a national level as part of my professional association, contributing to the development of pay and conditions of service, with regular interactions with trade unions at national and local levels and with the development of the MyJobScotland recruitment, and selection website to name two areas. I understand people and organisations.
I was an advocate for developments at work to support employees with caring roles and an advocate for care experienced young people, regularly attending the Champions Board. I chaired a group which developed access to in-kind support for various voluntary organisations across the city. I believe in fairness.
I have experience as a carer in a few guises and therefore believe I have an empathy and understanding of the challenges faced, I am married with grown up twin boys and have two stepdaughters. Recent additions of two grandsons and a granddaughter are a delight and certainly keeping me busy.
I look forward to being a part of this organisation and to helping it continue the great work being delivered across Dundee.
