Fairfield Management Team
Kellieanne Harrison - Service Manager
I started supporting children at Fairfield in September 2003 alongside studying for a degree at Liverpool Hope University. I completed one year on a primary teaching degree and then changed over to finish in Psychology. Both of these have helped my knowledge of working as a team to better support people with additional needs.
Whilst studying for my degree, I completed placements within special schools for children with Autism. This is where I first developed a special interest in Autism. The years from 2003 have passed very quickly within Fairfield. During that time, I have become a Mum to two children whom keep me busy outside of work, exploring different National Parks and bike tracks. My children further inspire my drive to ensure we work as hard as we can to make sure everyone who uses our service are as happy as possible.
I have worked through different roles within Fairfield but now take on dual responsibility for service delivery management. Since working in Fairfield, I gained a Level 5 in Leadership and Management of HSC and studied Autism at Lancaster College. I aim to move forward with completing a Level 7 in strategic leadership.
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.
