The Carers Centre was greatly saddened in June to learn that Janet Grahame, one of our long-standing trustees, had died.
Janet had been involved in our work since the first meeting held in Sheffield to discuss the possibility of setting up a Carers Centre in 1993. Janet had been a carer for her mother, and before retirement had set up and managed the South West Area Sitting Service (for carers of older people). She was very committed to the voluntary sector, and involved in the work of Disability Sheffield Centre for Independent Living, and the South Yorkshire Community Foundation. She had been a Board member of Voluntary Action Sheffield and on the Executive Committee of the Friends of the Botanical Gardens.
