Partners For Inclusion Service Leader

I’m a Service Leader for several team’s within Partners For Inclusion. I enjoy the complexities and challenges that the different people we support bring. It is these experiences that have taught me, most of what I know. Like some of my fellow Service Leader colleagues, I like to involve myself in the development of policies to make us even more effective.
I also enjoy how the Ethos of Partners and trust that exists within it, gives me the freedom to run with my ideas, which not only helps with my own developing and learning but also contributes to new initiatives and developments within the Organisation. During 2014/15 I involved myself in getting the organisation’s Social media profile up and running on Twitter and Facebook. This had many advantages which again developed both myself and the organisation.
It meant I was aware of the many trends and changes occurring in the Social Care field as I could see how organisations and government initiatives with similar aims to our’s we’re working. The next step was to make sure we had a profile in what was going on out there. Finally I enjoying cycling and getting outdoors I am married with two kids who bring balance to my working life.
