Hi, I’m Kay, the CEO of The Fircroft Trust. Everything about my career has been focussed on making a positive difference to people’s lives, and as CEO for The Fircroft Trust, every day is wonderfully different.
I feel very privileged to lead such a diverse and caring organisation with the amazing staff that walk alongside me, all of us led by the people we support, who are simply inspirational.
My career began over 40 years ago as a nurse specialising in mental health, and I am also a qualified counsellor, where I worked in the local community as a mental health practitioner.
I visited Fircroft (the Wellbeing Hub as it is now known) with a local authority commissioner at that time, and made a flippant comment that my aspiration would be to manage it. A few years later that same commissioner reached out to me and invited me for an interview – and the rest, they say, is history!
What a journey – one I am still as passionate about today.
Learning is about growing, and being a part of the people we support’s journey is an utter privilege.
Our Board of Trustees are incredibly supportive to me and all the people connected to The Fircroft Trust.
To me, the people we support, their families, and friends deserve the best, and as CEO I will always strive to achieve this.
Thank you for giving me this great opportunity at The Fircroft Trust, I am so excited as we embark on the next phase of our journey together, co-produced with the people most important to us, those we support, their families and friends, and our incredible team members across the charity.
