Local Development Manager: Trish Whitfield
I am the Carers Development Manager for East and Mid Devon and the Lead Practitioner for Older People. Some of you may know me as the previous Eastern Manager for The Devon Carers Link and prior to that I managed The East Devon Carers Support Scheme based in Honiton. I have worked supporting Carers in Devon now for nine years and would welcome any comments or issues you wish to share with me.

Local Development Manager (Exeter): Tim Collins
I have been supporting the Exeter team of Carers Support Officers as Local Development Manager since September 2015. Apart from a brief time working with volunteers, this is my first sustained period working within adult services. Most of my professional working life has been focused on children and families in a number of roles, including social worker, Children & Families Team Manager,  manager of a family centre in Newton Abbot, and most recently as the manager of the Sure Start Children’s Centres across Teignbridge. The last year has been a steep learning curve for us all, but all the while we have made sure that carers remain a clear focus for all that we do.
