I joined POhWER in April 2006. My current role is Associate Regional Manager for the South West Region which includes responsibility for the Statutory and non-Statutory Advocacy Contracts delivered in Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire.

My previous roles at POhWER include NHS Complaints Advocate and Senior Advocacy Practitioner.  In 2008 I joined the Management team and I’m currently on a 12 month secondment as Associate Regional Manager.  In my role as a Manager at POhWER I have also taken on secondment opportunities as Training and Quality Manager and Community Manager in POhWER’s Help Hub in Birmingham.

I’m proud to work for POhWER and to support our work as I really believe we make a difference to the lives of many people every day.

Before joining POhWER, I worked for Citizen’s Advice in Dudley and the Dudley Community Health Council.  I have a care background working in both Children’s and Adults services.

I have a general all round knowledge of the Legislation and practice of all statutory advocacy services, safeguarding, and health and social care structures and processes.
