Project Lead - Supported Internships (Medway)

I have been with bemix (formerly Skillnet  Group)  since September 2016 and lead on the development and delivery of our supported internship programme in Medway. I love to see our students succeed and watch their confidence grow over the year they are with us.

I am the Project Lead for Medway Supported Internships. I have 12 years experience working in the third sector providing outreach in the community as well as managing learning disability services. I have worked with the visually impaired and also the elderly. I have opened a new project in the mental health field and I have been heavily involved in Peer Support in my previous role and believe in co-production for any service to run successfully. I have a passion for my role and believe Supported Internships not only broaden the opportunities but can transform the lives of young people with learning difficulties. I pride myself in my organisational skills and I like to be busy. I enjoy spending my free time with my family and also attend the local Parkrun each week.
