I work for TLAP as a senior policy advisor, working across a range of projects. My entire career has been spent in social care in a range of different roles that have included policy and strategy; partnership work; commissioning and project management. Between 2009 and 2013 I worked across the South East of England for the Department of Health, and then the Health & Social Care Partnership, supporting policy implementation in the areas of personalisation, User Led Organisations, safeguarding, and carers.
Before coming to TLAP, I worked for Sitra, an organisation that represented supported housing providers, on a range of projects designed to link housing with social care, particularly in and around the development of the Care Act.
I greatly enjoy the opportunity that TLAP presents to contribute to the development of person and community-centred approaches, I particularly value working with a wide range of organisations for a common purpose and co-producing all we do with people with lived experience.
