I joined St. John’s in 2018 have undertaken various roles within the Care Department such as Lead Residential Support Worker, Team Leader, and Deputy Care Manager. Since February 2021, I have been the Care Manager of College View and Ashington Gardens, two 52-week residential provisions in Brighton and Peacehaven, which are part of the post-19 service.
I hold a Level 3 Diploma in Lead Adult Care, as well as a BSc in Psychology, and am currently studying for my Level 5 Diploma in Leader in Adult Care.
I’m extremely lucky to be able to work closely with a team of Care Managers who take responsibility for other St. John’s houses across Brighton and Seaford. My primary focus in the houses I manage is to support our young people to be as independent as possible, developing their daily living skills, social skills and communication skills. I am passionate about providing highly person-centred care and am constantly seeking new ways to promote and provide opportunities for our young people, particularly in regards to community access and involvement.
