I’m Alison and Head of Older People and Disability Services. All my working life I have worked with people and am passionate about service quality; what that really means to someone and how we can make people’s experiences of our services the very best of times. This is and always will be the focus of my departments’ work.
As a qualified coach and with 30 years of experience of leadership in social care services, I am committed to walking alongside people as partners in their journey in their life, building on their strengths and skill to achieve their goals.
Head of Disabilities and Older Persons services
What we do
YOU has been providing services for people with disabilities for 30 years and has a strong track record of helping people achieve their goals. We aim to meet people’s care or support requirements by providing a range of services tailored to each person’s needs and aspirations, whether in one’s own home, in the community, by way of advice and information or in shared supported living or residential care.
We do this by putting the person at the centre of all we do, being flexible and adaptable in our support and ensuring that we work alongside the person, their families and carers to promote the best outcomes.
All our care services are CQC registered and our guiding principles include listening, engaging, reflecting and involving people to walk alongside them empowering individuals to maximise choice and control over their own lives and release their full potential to live the life they want.
Our work can only be successful when we create open and honest communication and truly show respect and dignity with everyone we meet.
