Director: Catherine Turner
Cathy has worked in the Health and Social Care sector for 17 years. During this time Cathy has worked in a variety of settings including managing an Autism Respite service, setting up and operationally managing a Crisis Service from 2007 to 2014; which became an NHS award winning service. She was also the business development manager for her previous company – setting up and placing over 200 service users in quality accommodation with support as required to meet their needs. Her aim in life is to enable people who have a disability to live a full and active life. She aspires to promote positive mental health for all people who are in our care. She believes it is essential to work collaboratively with other members of the team alongside all outside agencies, this helps achieve good concerted practice which meets the holistic needs of each service-user.
Cathy has a great understanding of mental health theory, research and legal/ethical issues and how that translates into the lives and needs of service-users and their rights, as well as an awareness of the importance of equal opportunities, cultural and religious beliefs, in order to provide care that addresses the holistic needs of the service-user. Cathy understands the importance of recognizing that this must reflect the diversity of the individual, and therefore, strives towards a client-centred approach in her work. Cathy believes that she should always act as an advocate on behalf of those service-users in our care, who require it, in order to promote their rights, as they may not be aware of, or have the capacity to understand their rights; and has a duty to ensure that their rights are upheld.
It has been fourteen years since Rachel decided to fulfil her desire for a career in Human Resources. During this period she undertook changeable roles within HR due to career advancements in both existing and new companies that she has worked within. She always prides herself on being approachable, being of an open nature and highly personable. Rachel’s specialism is in all aspects of HR, having had key roles in several areas of responsibility and provided advice, guidance and support to other personnel.
Rachel made a decision at the outset of 2014 to leave her position as a HR Manager to work for 365 Support Ltd and take on the role of development of Human Resources and Learning & Development at 365 Support Limited. Rachel has both demonstrated and succeeded in guiding and supporting staff a senior managers in all aspects of HR practices from advice on recruitment and selection matters to advice and guidance concerning disciplinary and grievance matters ensuring they act fairly and legally thus providing a more effective working environment.
