Community Catalyst (Rotherham)
I previously worked for a local authority learning disability team in Yorkshire for five years while completing my Master in Research in Social Sciences – Planning and Policy.
I worked in a number of roles within the team but my work has primarily focused on accommodation, activities and transport for adults with a learning disability. As part of this role I also completed an accredited Travel Trainer/Assessment course.
In all aspects of my work there has been a focus on working with people to increase their independence and skills by having greater choice and opportunities and by accessing their local community.
These are objectives that I now apply to the project in Rotherham which aims to develop, support and provide new community-based options and increased choice for people with a learning disability. I am delighted to be part of the team and help contribute to the brilliant work they are already doing.
