Case Manager

Prior to moving to ACM, I worked as a Senior Social Worker for Essex County Council. I worked with adults with a variety of disabilities, including cerebral palsy, brain injuries, learning disabilities and physical disabilities.  Since joining ACM I have been able to transfer my skills and knowledge into my role as Case Manager.  I really enjoy supporting adults to employ their own staff; I think this enables a really personalised approach to the care and support they require.  I encourage each individual support worker to grow in confidence and skills.  My most recent highlight is working with a support team who have in the past had their struggles, but were runners-up in the Great British Care Awards.

I enjoy working at ACM so much that I recommended that two of my friends join!  When people ask me what it is like I tell them that no day is the same.  The role is to support our clients to live their best possible life; whether that is by supporting them in their employment, helping to lead their care team or helping them to plan their next big event.
