My name is Carla Piera, I have been working for Siel Bleu for the past 8+ years. In 2011, I was out of college, unemployed at the height of the recession and acting as a co-carer for the then 86 year old father. I witnessed first hand the impact of not being able to keep up physically with everyone else, while he was still mentally sharp. I decided one night to see if I could volunteer for a charity, and I stumbled upon Siel Bleu which had only been established 10 months earlier. I applied as a communications volunteer at 7pm and by 8:30am the next day I started working with them. In 2014 I took over the running of the organisation with my colleague and together we have grown it from 45 weekly services users to 6000 per week.
