Registered Manager

Mark Reed

I have worked in social care for 18 years, and feel really fortunate to have had experience in a wide variety of environments and roles, that has seen me spend extensive time working in every role social care can offer. From a support worker on nights through to a Regional Director, in services ranging from children and young people, to adults with both learning and physical disabilities, autism, mental health conditions and also residential and nursing care settings for elderly. I hold an NVQ Level 4 in both care and the leadership and management of care services, and have spent the past 12 years working as a manager and senior manager in residential care services.

I have always loved people and being involved in peoples lives and just see it as a real privilege to be able to use my personality and personal values as the main skill or attribute for my role, and that this gives me the chance to have a positive impact on the lives of the people around me. I believe really passionately in people being in control and involved in their care and that every individual has the chance to experience life, including all its joys and heartaches from the same vantage point as anybody else.

Recently I have been fortunate enough to be involved in some projects working alongside commissioners locally to give a providers perspective on how future frameworks and tenders could be shaped to reduce the amount of process that individuals and their loved ones experience when seeking support. As well as how, as providers we can be both supported and scrutinised to ensure we are delivering the very best care, and I am especially proud of this work.
