There were celebrations at Swanton’s Westbridge service in Hull when Team Leader Katie More received her ‘10 Years Of Service’ award. 

Katie began her career at Swanton Care in 2010 when she joined the team at Huckleberry House, formerly a children’s service. 

After five years of supporting children at Huckleberry House, Katie moved with Swanton as the company transferred to adult services.  

In 2019, Katie successfully applied for the Team Leader position at Hull Swanton Community and Care, based out of the Westbridge service. 

Service Manager Lisa Goodwin said that Katie’s dedication and professionalism have shone through over the years and that she’s got a bright future at Swanton. 

Lisa said: “I first met Katie in January 2019 when I became Service Manager in Hull, and I found her knowledge and experience of the services most helpful to me.   

“I immediately saw the potential Katie had and encouraged her to apply for the team leader post. She was successful at interview and is doing tremendously well. 

“She has a great future with Swanton – here’s to the next ten years!” 

Katie is known for going the extra mile to ensure the people she supports live their lives to the full. She’s also helped to mentor and support her colleagues and is always happy to help. 

People supported by Katie at Westbridge paid tribute to her with some lovely comments. 

Emma said: “Katie is a wonderful Team Leader, and I appreciate all her good work and all the looking after she does.” 

Lily said: “I like how supportive she is and appreciate all the work that Katie does as my key worker.” 

James said: “I like her kind nature, and I enjoy shifts with her because she brings her Alexa.” 

Congratulations, Katie – thank you for all your hard work.
