I am a 54 year old lady, married for the second time. I have 2 grown up children from my first marriage and 4 grandchildren. I am a member of the Women’s Institute, I also enjoy making greetings cards and scrapbooking.
I have had experience in helping people work out what they want to do with their support time. Although I live in Maidstone I have in the past helped people find activities in other areas of Kent.
I am currently a self employed support worker for people with learning disabilities. I have been a support worker for nearly 16years working in Kent and Hampshire both with people with learning disabilities and people suffering mental health problems.
I have completed support broker training with Signpost Kent through the NDTi. I also have NVQ4 in managing social care and NVQ3 in Community Care. I have studied with the Open University in Understanding Health and Social Care. I have been trained in helping people make person centred plans and putting them into action.
I can help you work out what you want to do with your support time.
