Meet our team

Marie Brennan

Registered Manager


I have worked within health and social care for the last 28 years supporting adults with learning disabilities and mental health needs, where I have progressed from my role as a support worker to area manager and gained my Level 5 in Leadership and Management.

I joined Swanton Care in October 2022 as Locality Manager for services around Burnley and Blackburn and I am really excited to be working with such a fantastic and dedicated team. Their Ethos align with my own beliefs and how I approach each and every day. 

I am passionate and committed to leading my team to deliver a high-quality service and who are equally as driven in providing a person-centred approach, supporting individuals to achieve their goals and aspirations. I believe that providing person centred care and support to the people we support, that is specific to their needs wishes and preferences, will ensure that they are at the focus of everything we do

Dhiraj Rijhwani

Regional Director

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.

Tom Pick

Chief Operating Officer for England

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.
