I am a Qualified Community Broker.
I have a background in care and I am passionate about people having a voice and equality.
I support people to get the care and support they want by helping an individual to prepare for a social work assessment, talk through what matters most to them, advocate on behalf of an individual, explain what Self Directed Support is and what the 4 options would mean to the person. Providing information and advice enables individuals to have the choice and control over their care and support.
Community Brokers make the most out of any identified budget from the local authority but we also support people who do not need care services by finding out what interests they have and connecting the person with professionals or community support of interest for example a knitting class or a occupational therapist.
