We’re a group who want to support wellbeing in the local community.

We’re trying to make things better for people who experience mental ill-health and those with learning disabilities.

We do this by providing a range of employment and learning services to local people.

I was born and raised in Darlington. After completing a business degree in Hull I moved south to Erith and joined The McNaughton Paper Group as a buyer. I stayed there for 19 years, becoming purchasing and supply manager in 1998. After 2005 I began to lose my sight and was registered blind in 2008. I joined the staff team in June 2013, I am trained in mental health first aid and individual placement and support. After 3 years as head of employment and skills, I became Chief Executive Officer of Re-Instate in September 2018.
