People

The support we provide and the values and promises we make would not be possible without a great team of people who are dedicated and passionate about the organisation and the services we provide. The structure of the organisation puts the people we support first. The organisation then has the priority of supporting colleagues to deliver a quality personalised service. The staff teams working closest to the people we support has the biggest impact on a day to day basis and they are supported by a Senior Management Team who in turn is actively supported by the Chief Executive and the Warrington Community Living Board of Trusties.
