MEET OUR OUTREACH COORDINATORS.
We provide information and support to adult carers in Guernsey and Alderney.
Unpaid carers are people who look after a spouse or partner, child, relative or friend who is ill, disabled, or elderly and frail. They may be helping someone with day-to-day practical tasks, personal care, or financial matters.
We provide a holistic service tailored to individual carers’ needs, whether that is a listening ear, accessing services, maximising entitlements, change to benefits, peer group support, help with grants and respite or a stay at our carers' caravan. We know that caring can be challenging, and our friendly and experienced team understand what it’s like to be a carer and are always ready to help.
Our Outreach Coordinators are understanding, supportive and have a wealth of practical experience to help you with your caring concerns. Learn more about our team members below.

My name is Fiona Mansell and I have lived in Guernsey for over eleven years. I live with my husband Keith and my two teenage daughters Erin and Eve. We have a menagerie of animals: three dogs, three chickens, one horse, one tortoise and one guinea pig.
I qualified as a nurse in 1986 and since then have worked in the UK, Jersey and Guernsey. I have worked in various roles throughout my career and have enjoyed all of them!
I am passionate about caring and feel very privileged and excited to be working for Carers Guernsey.

She has experience in supporting carers, parents of young people with disabilities and individuals with health conditions and disabilities.

Debbie says "My first-hand experience of being a carer, allows me to understand the challenges faced by carers, as well as having a deep respect for the vital work they do. I’m passionate about the value of carers and have a deep understanding of the emotional and practical demands of their role. I recognise how isolating caring can sometimes be and the impact it can have on carers' lives. I am delighted to be working in this hugely rewarding role within which I am able to bring a wealth of experience, knowledge and skills from my professional background, lived experience and work within the community and voluntary sector."
