Resident or prospective residents can ask me about any aspect of housing and support in the Scarborough area. If I don’t know the answers I can signpost to other agencies.
I head up a team that can help in terms of repairs, finance, catering, care and support, and healthy living.
Every day is different. When I get up in the morning, I have no idea what is going to happen that day. Working in the care sector can be very unpredictable.
I enjoy the relationships that I have developed with residents, their families and external users.
I am very proud of the community that has developed at Plaxton Court and enjoy seeing how people's lives have improved with a little extra care.
My background is in welfare benefits and housing. I worked for Bradford and Scarborough Councils before becoming the Neighbourhood Services Officer for Scarborough. I have worked at Plaxton Court for nearly ten years, watching it grow from a building site to a thriving community, and have learned a lot along the way.
