Hi, I’m Claire Swan and I’m a Parent Rep for Caerphilly, South Wales. I have two little girls Holly and Lucy, my youngest daughter Lucy is my SWAN. I work within the local health service with children and adults who have varying disabilities and health conditions, but it wasn’t until having Lucy that I began to appreciate how hard it can be bringing up a child with additional needs. I could see all the wonderful SWAN UK events happening around the UK and I really wanted to bring some of these events into my area, so six months after joining I applied to be a Parent Rep. I’m hoping that in my role as Parent Rep I can help create a larger support network in Wales for families living without a diagnosis for their children.
