From the age of ten, I was a full-time young carer for a physically disabled family member. It is quite hard to describe what the role consists of as it really can vary - from emotional support, pushing a wheelchair, to running an entire household – it often depends on the day. In recent years, I moved for university and joined the graduate scheme here at BT. As a result, my carer role has become more part-time. Naturally, this has led to feelings of guilt and a pressure to make sure the right level of care is available at home when I am not present. I think it is incredibly important to recognise a lot of carers feel guilt, including those that are full time; we can always see what more we could be doing. Joining the BT Carers Network has allowed me to share my experiences but more importantly hear the experience of others increasing my understanding of how to balance between both roles.
