Meet our team

Stuart Healer

Service Manager

Hi, I’m Stuart Healer, the service manager of Seaham View - Swanton Care. I have worked with Swanton since 2011, beginning as a Support Worker, working with adults with learning disabilities and autism. 

In prior positions I had never enjoyed my day-to-day roles; however, I found that becoming a Support Worker was extremely rewarding and I could set goals and achievements for myself to ultimately become Service Manager one day. With the help and support of Swanton Care, providing me with the tools and patience to complete multiple diplomas in health and social care, team leading and management qualifications and a positive behaviour support qualification. I achieved my goal in March 2021 all whilst supporting lots of amazing individuals in our care. 

Although my role and responsibilities have changed, the most important responsibility hasn’t, we want to ensure that Every Moment Matters for the people we support.

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.
