My passion is to help people. I have been enthusiastic about social care from a very young age and have had a great deal of family experience around Mental Health. I have watched many social care settings fail to provide adequate support for individuals. And this led me to become even more passionate about making a difference to the provision of support and the world of social care. So at the age of 15 I began volunteering with rehabilitating individuals with mental health back into the community.
At Frontier, an important part of my role is working closely with the support & behaviour teams to help the people we support to live fulfilling lives in a way that best suits them and to appreciate their differences by using their strengths and working as a team to develop their independence skills.
I have seen first hand the beneficial impact that a good team and management can have on the daily lives of the people we support. I take great pride in my work and the smiles and happiness that I see means a great deal to me and spurs me on to further support the varying needs of individuals and to help the world to better understand differences.
In my spare time I am working towards building qualifications to support my role in social care, including courses in: Mental Health, Learning Disabilities, Autism and Health and Social Care.
