Abstract

In this paper I explore how my values based practice has helped me develop my authenticity as a leader of a care-givers’ centre. I use the American term care-giver as this is based on a presentation I gave at the inaugural conference of the Action Research Network of the Americas in San Francisco 1-2 May 2013. In the UK we are called a carers’ centre and our aim is to support unpaid carers who care for a family member or friend who could not manage without their help due to illness or disability. I explore how my story from child in care to chief executive of a carers’ centre and carer of my mum has developed my living theory of care-giving.
