Client Rehabilitation Manager becomes Trustee of Steel Bones Charity
Ashtons Legal is delighted to announce that Client Rehabilitation Manager Caroline Trinder has joined charity Steel Bones as a Trustee.
Steel Bones was formed in July 2014 by Emma and Leigh Joy-Staines and help amputees and their families live life to the full.
The charity is community-based and demand-led and provides advice, guidance or signposting to relevant services to help amputee families navigate the complex, and often confusing, amputee support landscape. They have a year-round calendar of regular social events for amputees and their families and also provide engaging awareness workshops for primary schools, publishing children’s books featuring amputee families in settings familiar to all readers, young and old.
Steel Bones’ telephone support service, the Bones Line, their website and online community help support amputee families across England and Wales, while their local, volunteer-led, Steel Bones’ hubs work on the ground with amputee families in their own communities.
Caroline Trinder is a Client Rehabilitation Manager at Ashtons and works alongside all of the injury services teams ensuring that their injured clients have access to appropriate services and rehabilitation prior to funding being available.
She has been a Registered Nurse for almost 40 years and before moving to Norfolk, she worked in London for 35 years including working as a Ward Sister on a Neurosurgical ward, and as a Ward Manager of an Orthopaedic ward.
Caroline has also worked as a Rehabilitation Case Manager for over 10 years assisting Clients who have been seriously injured both physically, and psychologically following road traffic collisions or accidents at work.
Caroline is passionate about exercise, sports, and rehabilitation. She assists those with complex trauma injuries, and amputees from the early stage of hospitalisation, to assisting with statutory and NHS services in the community, and with the return to work programmes.
As a volunteer for Steel Bones, Caroline has supported the team in organising an inclusive tennis event at her tennis club in Norfolk and assisted with a Steel Bones school workshop in her local village. She regularly attends the Steel Bones support group at Julian Hospital, Norfolk, and has referred several new amputees to the charity.
