Network 6: Neath Port Talbot

Here in Network 6 we provide support to 26 individuals including some sessionals.  We currently employ 74 staff including 6 Personal Support Managers.

We have a committee where the staff support individuals to plan activities they want to take part in. Activities have included evenings at the theatre, various days out, parties, and the opening of ‘Eddies Bar,’ situated and managed by the gents living at Wildbrook. As a Network, we support each other to be able to participate in all activities, by sharing staff and ‘buddying up.’ This ensures all the people we support can access the activities they enjoy.

 

My name is Sheree Lewis-Jones, and I am the Locality Manager for Network 6

 

I have been with CLC since October 1998 having worked in various roles including Support Worker, Deputy Team Leader, Team Co, Deputy Network Manager, Peri Deputy Network Manager, Temp Peri Network Manager, and current post of Locality Manager in Network 6.  I have worked across a number of Networks/Localities.

I am very keen, enthusiastic and give 100% at all times.  I consider myself to be fair and committed to CLC and always strive to develop my team and encourage and support the schemes to achieve their full potential.  I have the relevant training for my current role and am also the Epilepsy Trainer for CLC.

The Personal Support Managers for Locality 6 are:

Dawn Day – I started working for CLC in March 1994 , as a part-time support worker at Thorney Rd, I then went on to have a full-time post and then a team leader’s post.

In August 2002  I moved to Bryn Teg.  While with CLC I have completed my level 4 Management and also level 4 Care Qualifications. Although I have been with the company a long time I’m always willing to try new ideas and move with the times, I consider myself to be a good listener, fair, straight talker and a team player.

 

Michael Gant – I have worked for CLC for over 15 years, beginning my role as a Support Worker in 2005. I spent a good amount of time helping out at other schemes to broaden my experiences before taking up a part time training role within the main office. In 2010 I returned to my role at Wildbrook before taking on the role of Personal Support Manager in 2018. As a long serving member of staff I enjoy the responsibility that comes with managing a scheme. I am always excited and motivated by new innovative ways of working and am looking forward to hopefully obtaining some new qualifications with the company’s support in the next year or so.
