Meet the team
Julie – Service Manager
I’m in my 6th year with Carers Information & Support Service following my return to CHCP and thoroughly enjoy my role as Service Manager. I am passionate about delivering a service that meets the needs of unpaid carers ensuring that we promote a ‘think carer’ approach across within all services, communities and families to raise awareness of unpaid caring to ensure that carers can access support in their own right. I am dedicated to continually improve the support to unpaid carers and have played a pivotal role in the successful Carers Champion Training, Carers Card and Hull Carers Strategy.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, dog walking, going to the cinema, listening to music and a spot of gardening.

Michelle– Integrated CISS Worker
Hi, my name is Michelle, and I am one of the Care Support workers for the Carer support service, I have been in my role for nearly two years. When I joined the team, it was quite small and I have particularly enjoyed sharing my skills and knowledge with new team members, watching the service expand and develop into a truly supportive team for carers.
I have spent the last 15 years working for CHCP in support of both peoples physical and mental health. Previously I have worked with both the weight management and stop smoking teams and now within the Carers support team I have a passion for empowering people to carry out their caring roles with the support and guidance they need.
I particularly enjoy sharing my knowledge and understanding with carers to enable them to carry on caring when they may feel at a low point this is very rewarding, and I hope to continue being part of this evolving service that helps to support so many people with their caring roles.
Personally, I enjoy spending my time with family and friends, and walking in the local countryside. I also enjoy listening to live bands and enjoy a good Netflix series.

Rebecca – Employment Support Worker
Hello, I’m Rebecca, the Employment Support Worker within the Carers’ Information and Support Services. The focus of my role is to support carers who are balancing a caring role and employment and offer flexible appointments to enable carers to access much needed support, this can we do over the telephone, face to face appointments at multiple sites across the city or in the workplace. I also attend Health and Wellbeing Events within the workplace to raise awareness of unpaid carers and also promote the information, advice and support available. I am available to work with local employers to support the carers within their own workforce.
I am passionate about supporting unpaid carers.
I love spending my time with family, partner and friends. I enjoy camping, watching real-life documentaries; anything with dogs or elephants. I support Hull FC and go to both home and away games, as I thoroughly enjoy watching them play.
Jamie - Integrated CISS Worker
My previous work was working in residential settings for people with complex dementia needs and supporting both the person and their families with their ongoing care and pathway of dementia. Through this career path, I completed Dementia Care Mapping training, which enhanced how I looked at providing the best person-centred care that I could.
I needed a change after 27 years, but still wished to help people. That is when I found CISS and I was determined to work for them, which worked out for me. I strive to support unpaid carers out there to have the best that they can have in their lives as they juggle numerous roles and emotions.
I am a carer too, so I support carers how I would like to be supported and then tailor their support around what is best for them.
I am very proud to be a part of this team, who are carer led and we share our combined knowledge to provide the best service that we can.
In my spare time I am co-event director for Humber Bridge parkrun and I love to write books.
