Hartford Care has spent over £8m in the last year refurbishing our homes, by mid-2024 every home will have undergone major refurbishment, including over £1.5m for solar panels across the majority of our homes. All our homes have their own individual character and charm. When refurbishing, we always seek the very best for the people we support. We look through our residents eyes and try to see what they will see, especially those who might be living with the frailties of old eyes and cognition. Each home is lovingly and rigorously maintained to create a warm and homely atmosphere.View our Care homes

People and Culture DirectorRead More >
I began my career in the NHS on an HR graduate training programme, gaining experience across primary, secondary and mental health hospital trusts. Upon completion of the programme, I became Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development qualified and completed a master’s degree in HR. After seven years as Head of HR at West Middlesex University Trust, I transitioned to the charity sector as Director of HR for Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity, a position I held for six years.

During my time at Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity, we created a positive working culture by truly valuing our people, listening to them and helping them progress professionally. The company was awarded ‘The Sunday Times Best Companies to Work’ for 11 consecutive years, which I was very proud of.
I am extremely passionate about working for an organisation that cares about its employees and volunteers as much as its residents and their families. Hartford Care’s values of care, comfort and companionship, along with its ‘home from home’ ethos resonated with me, and my role demonstrates the importance Hartford Care is putting into building a positive culture.
It’s crucial for me to work in an organisation where you can see the impact you have and I want our teams to enjoy coming to work, feel supported and be empowered to do a good job, which in turn gives our residents the best care possible.
