Pennine View - Emerald Care is a 2-bedroom residential home located on a cul-de-sac in Darfield, Barnsley. We provide tailored person-centred support to the individuals who live here who have autism, learning disabilities and associated behaviour that may challenge.
I joined Emerald Care in February 2014 as a Support Worker and have progressed to Registered Manager at Pennine View with the support and development opportunities from Swanton Care.
My passion for advocating and supporting vulnerable adults is deep rooted throughout my life and I am proud to manage a diverse service that empowers individuals to achieve their goals. The team brings creativity and fun to aid social inclusion and independence to the adults at Emerald Care.
I have worked within the adult social care sector for the last 14 years and have experience within mental health services, learning disabilities and autism. My professional development pathways from Swanton Care have enabled me to fulfil my aspirations and I value the knowledge and experience I gain from my current role.
I started my career in 2003 as a bank support worker and I have worked hard to progress. I was promoted within a year to a Team Leader, then a Registered Manager. I make it my mission to ensure that every person has a voice and a person-centred plan in place.
I joined Emerald Care Services as a Registered Manager in 2019 and I was delighted in 2022 to be promoted to the Regional Operations Director for the Central and Yorkshire Region for Swanton Care.
It’s my passion to ensure that I provide the guidance to my teams to enable them to care for people we support at an outstanding level. I am committed to making a difference to the lives of the people we support and my team whilst being present in each area of my region, making the time to visit each home as much as possible.
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.
At Pennine View, we offer high quality support to empower people to identify their own strengths and enable them to achieve their goals. Fun, laughter, and new opportunities are a part of daily life at Pennine View.
Swanton has given Pennine a new lease of life in the garden, meaning we now have a fantastic area that the people we support can enjoy. The garden has been designed and maintained cohesively with the team who work at Pennine View, the people we support and their families. Offering choice and decision making when it comes to their home.
We are proud of the commitment the team at Pennine View offers to the people we support, the goals and aspirations of those we support are what drives the team, our latest CQC inspection evidences the compassion the team provides.
