Kind Hearts Care & Support was founded in 2013 by Clarissa Brady and Susan Foster.
Clarissa started working in care in 1999 in Birmingham for a community living project that supported adults with learning disabilities. Her main role was to support and integrate individuals into society from long stay hospitals. She then relocated to Staffordshire and worked for Mencap in 2002 for adults with learning and physical disabilities.
In 2005 Clarissa worked for a supported living unit for adults with physical disabilities, starting off as a Support Worker and progressing to House Manager.
In 2010 she became a Care Manager progressing to Registered Care Manager in 2012 for a care and support agency in Domiciliary Care, until June 2013.
Susan started off working for the Civil Service and later on the RAC until she raised a family. After having a family she returned to work, working for the recovery of the mentally ill. Susan gained a lot of experience working with the challenges of mental health, understanding their individual needs and assisting them to gain their confidence back throughout the rehabilitation process to enable them to restart their lives in their own accommodation.
She then changed course all together and ran her own shop for 15 years fully understanding and having the experience of the responsibilities that come with running a business. In 2011 Susan started working as a Domiciliary Care Worker, having hands on experience with caring for the elderly on a daily basis.
