House Manager: Kevin Hannaford
I have worked for the Community for the past 20 years starting off at the grass roots as a shift worker, then progressing through a number of different roles to registered manager.
Prior to this I worked extensively on the East coast of America instructing young adults in a variety of outdoor pursuits including canoeing and archery, eventually traveling as far as Alaska. Having been born and then grown up in the local area, I have extensive knowledge of its local history and geography which I use to others advantage in my secondary role as outdoors activities instructor. My approach to my role is based on developing harmonious and constructive relationships through observation, then offering individuals tailored encouragement to assist them in achieving their potential.
Staff cared deeply about people’s wellbeing and self-esteem. Each person’s care plan contained information about how staff should boost people’s self-esteem. For example, staff were encouraged to include one person in all conversations, where possible, and acknowledge their achievements with positive feedback. With another person, staff were encouraged to create opportunities for the person to boost their own self-esteem through sport and outdoor activity, which they excelled at.
