The services comprise of people living together in spacious bespoke homes or living by themselves in their own homes or with family members.
I have worked within health and social care for the past 27 years. Working with adults and children with learning disabilities, autism, complex health needs, mental health and learning difficulties, I started as a support worker gradually working my way through to management level. This has helped me gain the skills and knowledge to provide a positive and supportive environment for both the people we support and our staff.
I pride myself in delivering a person-centred approach, empowering the people we support to live their lives to the fullest and achieve their goals no matter how big or small.
I joined Swanton Care in 2023 as Deputy Manager and am now the Service Manager for supported living and community support who assist 20 individuals over Lancashire.
I am highly motivated to lead my team to provide a person-centred approach, always ensuring the people we support are at the forefront of all that we do, making sure that ‘Every Moment Matters!’
I joined Swanton in 2017 as a service manager and worked with the team to expand supported living services as well as manage residential homes. In time, I became regional director for the North-East in 2021. I learned very early on in my career with Swanton that the company is very passionate about the people we support, their homes and enriching their quality of life, which aligns with my own values.
I moved to England from Mumbai, India, in 2005 for education which I continued to do for several years. During this time, I integrated with people from many countries and cultures, and this helped broaden my viewpoints massively. I firmly believe this helped me to embrace diversity and value varied inputs throughout my career, which I have been in since 2006.
I understand that being in a support environment can be difficult. Together, the team and I are here to help in empowering and supporting those in our care to feel safe and live the lives they wish to lead.
I started my career as a Support Worker when I graduated university in 2004, progressing my way through Deputy Manager and Home Manager, eventually joining Swanton in 2018 working as a Locality Manager covering services in and around Hull.
I have successfully held registrations for, and worked in, a full range of services from Supported Living to challenging Residential homes.
I share Swanton Care’s passion for ensuring that the vulnerable people in our care have the best life and opportunities possible. I believe this is achieved by making sure the people we support have their voices heard and that our teams are appropriately trained ad supported to provide this care.
I feel privileged to work in such a rewarding sector with a fantastic team, I look forward to what the future will bring for the people we support and our organization.
