I joined St. John’s as a Care Worker in 1998. Since then I have undertaken various roles within the Care Department such as Team Leader, Senior Care Worker, Deputy Care Manager and Care Manager. For the last 7 years I have been the Head of Care, overseeing, developing, planning for and managing both the pre and post 19 services. I have gained my NVQ level 3 in Caring for Children & Young People, NVQ 4 in Management and LMC level 4 (Registered Managers award). I am currently studying a level 5 in Positive Behaviour Support and act as the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead for the organisation. I am now the Head of Learner Services for the organisation.
I am further supported by a team of 6 Care Managers who take responsibility for the day to day running of specific houses.
Our passion is to offer each individual young person the best experience of being at St. John’s. We are constantly seeking new ways to enrich the lives of those in our care, offer opportunities, encourage independence as well as seeking new ways in which to improve our department and the outcomes for individuals.
