Jim Harvey

Young Carers' Project Worker
Jim Harvey

I have over 30 years’ experience working with children and young people in both paid and voluntary positions.

My 20 years as a Cadet Force Adult Volunteer with Devon Army Cadet Force, alongside 30 years running paintball and outdoor laser tag activities, has equipped me well for the role of organising safe, challenging and fun respite activities for young carers.

I have worked for Carewise for over 10 years helping to support local young carers with respite activities 1 to 1 support and residential trips.

I believe that all children and young people deserve to receive support when required. I will always strive to help young people to be the best they can and to fulfil their potential.
