I joined ISL as a support worker in late 2021 and I have since stepped up to Acting Service Manager. Support work has long been my passion, there is nothing better than seeing someone achieve a goal that they never thought they could and knowing that you helped get them there.
York service is a small supported living service for adults with autism and other wider needs. Everyone we work with is active in the community and keen to give most things a go. This paired with a close-knit team means each day is a pleasure. Being part of a successful process, building people’s confidence and independent living skills up to the point that they can then move out is super rewarding.
I have worked in Mental Health & Social care for a little over 13 years. In this time, I have gained several certificates in Disability services, a Bachelor of Arts and my level 5 in Management of Health & Social care. Previous to ISL, I worked as a support worker in Australia in a day service for Adults with various complex needs. Then, post emigrating to the UK, I worked my way up from support worker to service manager of 2 supported living services for people with Mental Health needs.
I love being part of an experienced team of support workers who all have the same common goal – to see everyone we support push themselves to do things they didn’t think they could. I am proud of working for ISL and I truly look forward to seeing it grow into bigger things.
We are always happy to talk to you about what we do and how we may be able to help.Contact ISL
