Abi Squires

Young Carer Coordinator

Since obtaining a First Class Honours Degree in Psychology at the University of Winchester in 2019, I have worked within youth charities that support young people with their education, personal development and emotional wellbeing. Having experience in managing and training volunteers to confidently support young people as well as personally providing pastoral support to young people with difficult home lives, I am passionate about making young people’s voices heard and ensuring they can reach their potential. I am honoured to now be a part of Carer Support Dorset and play a part in raising awareness, empowering and championing carers. In my spare time I enjoy yoga, walking my (very!) excitable dog Layla and experimenting creatively - my latest self-taught craft is embroidery.
