I decided to work with people whom had a disability at a young age, this was mainly due to my home life as my brother had Muscular Dystrophy and my mum had Multiple Schelerosis. Growing up in an environment whereby we had different health professional service’s coming into our home daily, gave me an insight on how having a family member with a disability and finding the right support for them can be and was at times very difficult. We had some positive professional support and some not so positive – due to this I wanted to be in a service whereby I felt I could help to make a positive difference in a person’s life.  

I have worked in social care with adults who have Autism and severe learning disability’s since 1994 over the years working my way up through the ranks, commencing my employment with a local authority as a support worker supporting adults with severe learning disabilities and complex needs. I was promoted to Residential Care Worker (RCW) my role was to ensure standards within the home were being met in line with local policy and procedures as well as government inspectors such as Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Four years later I was promoted to Group Leader, as part of a team setting up a new addition to the service that was to consist of housing suitable for adults who have a profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) working with health professionals such as Occupation Therapist and Physiotherapist, and ensuring we recruited a team with the right values to support the people who would reside at the new tenancies.

I was selected to be CQC Registered Manager of the Service and further to this I was promoted to Deputy Manager and Registered Manager. I was acting manager for a large Domiciliary care service and a Respite service for 18 months and took on additional responsibilities at this time.
