Endings and Beginnings
On 30th June 2003 I began work in a fantastic charity called Alabare Christian Care & Support as their Learning Disabilities Service Manager and on 20th April 2018 it will be my last working day as their Care & Support Director which is a post I have held since 2012. I have loved my roles, my passionate and dedicated staff and the difference that we were able to make together for some of the most vulnerable people in our society whether they were our homeless clients, children or young people, homeless veterans or people with a learning disability or coping with mental ill health. Doing a quick bit of maths that could be making a difference to over 40,000 people in that time. During those 15 years there have been many battles, challenges and joys and now that the charity is in a secure place with new services starting and on a sounder financial footing it is time to say farewell and move on to new adventures of my own.
I am really excited to beginning Test Valley Nordic Walking – more news soon 🙂
