Area Manager for York

I joined ubu at the beginning of 2017 having been employed in the Social Care Sector since 1987. I come from a social work background and have worked within Local Authorities, in the private sector and in voluntary, non-profit and charitable organisations. Just when I thought that I had experienced most of the possible challenges in the social care arena, the ubu experience has asked me to revisit and confront those presumptions. I am amazed and inspired by ubu, an organisation that lives it's mission statement in every action and strives to achieve outstanding goals and outcomes for the people we serve. The passion of ubu's team members is evident in all roles and at all levels.

In the short time I have spent at ubu the pace of change has been both exhilarating and challenging. The training is of extraordinary quality and the high expectations set by the organisation have enabled me to stretch myself to continue to develop into a better leader in the future. It is a privilege to be part of a of an innovative, leading edge organisation that is truly making a difference in transforming the lives of some of society’s most vulnerable and overlooked people.
