I served as the Health Representative on the Leicester City, Leicestershire and Rutland Multi Agency Public Protection Panel from 2000 – 2005, and also on their operational management group for the same period.

I have continued working in championing the rights and dignity of people who require care services. I continue my interest in the promotion of the value base that social work, alongside other professional disciplines aspire to.
