I can be ANYTHING project I can be anything
This project began after a group of Primary School pupils asked some amazing questions of our nurses in a virtual meeting. They were so interested in the jobs of our care team that we decided to ask a wide range of staff some questions with a focus on future careers. This pack can be used to look into different career paths in the charity sector and to learn more about Claire House!
