Joan won the Award for her volunteer work with Renfrewshire Carers Centre. Joan, who is a carer herself, has volunteered at the centre for four years.
As well as providing care for two family members, Joan supports the centre in a number of ways including fundraising, telephone and face-to-face support for other carers, befriending and helping others carers to get a break.
Diane Goodman, Centre Manager at Renfrewshire Carers Centre, said:
“Joan is a huge help to us here at the centre and she is always looking at ways she can support us. We nominated her as we wanted her hard work and commitment to the centre and the carers in the area to be recognised and we’re thrilled that it has.”
