Meet our team

Michelle Williams

Service Manager

I joined Swanton Care in October 2001 as a Support Worker, over the years I have seen significant positive progression within Swanton and within a year of starting my employment, I was promoted to a Team Leader. I stayed as a Team Leader for many years due to starting a family; however, as my children got older, I felt it was time to progress myself further and challenged myself to become Deputy Manager at another of our Swanton Care homes. 

I developed and gained more knowledge over the years and with the help and support I received from Swanton Care, I completed my Level 5 Management Qualification. I am now at a level where I can help and support my team to gain knowledge and experience within their career. 

I strive to provide a positive environment for both the people we support and my team to encourage growth and ensure goals are met.

Kuba Nowak

Regional Director

I joined Swanton Care in September 2006 as a Support Worker at Maesteilo care home, since then I have gradually progressed through to Team Leader, Deputy Manager, Home Manager and most recently progressing to Regional Director of Wales in July 2022. Throughout my time with Swanton Care, they have supported me through my Level 3 and Level 5 Management qualification in Health and Social Care. 

I have supported people with learning disabilities and autism for over 16 years, the knowledge and skills gained during this time is invaluable and has supported my progression through to my current role. My philosophy is to provide person-centred care that embraces safe and meaningful care for the people we support, encouraging growth and opportunity. I am a strong believer that working together is best and working in partnership with the people we support brings more positive and meaningful outcomes.

During my seven years of being a Manager, I have helped develop 4 members of my team who then progressed to Deputy or Managers. Encouraging my team to develop and grow always brings a smile to my face and I look forward to continuing this throughout my role as Regional Director.

Kate Pearce

Chief Operating Officer for Scotland and Wales

I became a Chief Operating Officer in July 2022, prior to this I was Regional Director to Values in Care for 2 years. During my time in the social care sector, I have gained a wealth of experience, starting my career as a young Support Worker in 2003, progressing through roles such as Keyworker, Manager and Area Manager.

I have loved gaining qualifications along the way, including a Level 5 in Leadership and Management and an ILM Level 5 (The Institute of Leadership and Management), this has helped me to support the people in our care to have a better quality of life. I also have a keen interest in Positive Behavioural Support and am continuing my learning by undertaking a Diploma in this specialist area.

During my 19 years in the social care sector, I have always worked in complex homes for people with learning disabilities and autism, leading and directing teams to ensure we offer the best care possible to the people we support. Growing organically has ensured that I have vast knowledge, experience and understanding in the care sector.
