Adult Safeguarding, Mental Capacity and Deprivation Of Liberty Safeguards (DOLS)
As SILs Deputy Manager in the Independent Living at Home team I have a keen interest in the topics I train in and see their importance and implementation on a daily basis.
I achieved BTEC Level 3 in Education and Training in August 2016 and a level 3 Train the Trainer in Mental Capacity and in Safeguarding which underpins the methods and knowledge base for my sessions.
I am part of the Herefordshire Safeguarding for Adults Practitioners Forum which allows me to keep updated and also hear about local issues/good practices.
As a Dementia Friend, I’ve learnt a little bit more about what it’s like to live with dementia which has given me a better understanding of how to how help someone with the condition. I am passionate about support and awareness in this mental health condition and deliver Dementia Friends Awareness Sessions to encourage others to become Friends.
