Shirley Lawton

I worked in a large day care centre for Lancashire County Council for 22 years mainly as a cook but also fulfilling a care role on a daily basis including supporting numerous service users on activity holidays in the Lake District. My most recent care role was supporting a disabled lady on a remote island just off the Hebrides which has been one of my biggest challenges to date. In my spare time I enjoy cake making and art which are skills that I put to great use to benefit our services users. My main duties at Charter House are to manage our team of staff in the Resource Centre, and support the people who attend sessions with us during the day. I work to ensure the whole team provide a safe, fun, educational, stimulating and friendly environment for our service users. I have training in Positive Behaviour Support, Safeguarding, Food Hygiene and First Aid.
