Helen Jones

Job Title: Manager


Hi, I'm Helen, I am 40 something years old, married with 4 children, aged between 15 and 22 years old and I have lived in the local area of Ash/Ash Vale for the last 30 years.

For the past eight years I have supported adults with a severe learning disability, challenging behaviours and complex needs. Throughout my career I have always enjoyed helping people to develop their skills and to grow in confidence to become as independent as possible. Sometimes this can be a lengthy process spanning years rather than months, but I have found that I have the dedication and commitment required for this and I delight with them in every small achievement reached.

I have achieved NVQ level 3 Promoting Independence, NVQ level 4 Care and the Registered Managers Award.
