Meet our Care Team
Our Carers work tirelessly to make sure people in the local area get the help they need when they need it. Care can be challenging at times, and we are so proud of their constant dedication and enthusiasm. NEDCare wouldn’t be where it is today without the help of our fantastic Care Team.

Outside of work, Kate enjoys walking her dog, Ethel, in the woods around her home.
Hilary was attracted to NEDCare’s ethos of being a charity, and a local organisation making people’s lives better in the community. She says, ‘the flexibility in hours works well for me; it fits in with my retirement and family life’. Outside working for NEDCare, Hilary enjoys long walks with her dog on the moor, growing veg, tending to her chickens and spending time with her grandchildren.
As NEDCare is a registered charity, we have a Board of Trustees, made up of local people volunteering their time to ensure we benefit the community and deliver the best care we can. Our Management Team is based at the NEDCare office in Moretonhampstead Hospital. They keep the wheels of NEDCare turning, supporting our care team from first thing in the morning until the end of the working day, making sure there is always someone on the end of the phone for carers or clients.
