I am TLAP's Making it Real and Building Community Capacity Policy Advisor. I have worked in social care commissioning and policy roles in local government for twenty years more recently I've led on developing person-centred care pathways.
I am passionate about personalisation because it has radicalised the approach to health and social care and opened up a way of working that already seems light years away from the traditional model.
I look forward to ongoing transformation via the implementation of the Care Act and want to see the radical change that it promises: potentially, an end to only supporting those who can meet a very stringent eligibility and financial threshold and a formal, acknowledgement that to lead a good life requires much broader community input.
I am looking forward to working with an organisation which has made co-production integral to its way of working.
