Caroline Mulhall – Registered Care Manager for Supported Living and Outreach
I began my journey with Autism West Midlands at Upper Ford Lodge in July 2010 as a Team Leader. During my time there I worked alongside the Manager and the amazingly dedicated staff team. I was supported to develop my skills and knowledge and after12 months I expressed an interest to progress and I was supported with this.
In November 2011 I was offered a secondment into a Service Coordinator role for supported living. I gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in this fast paced role which put me in the right place to apply for the Registered Care Manager role when it became available.
I have worked long and hard to develop myself in each role. With this with hard work and support from the organisation I have managed to go from Team Leader to Registered Care manager in 4 years.
Amanda Phillips – Family Service Coordinator
I have worked for AWM since April 2004, inspired by my son's diagnosis to increase my knowledge and experience within the field.
I have spent many years within Residential and Resource Centre settings; working with adult service users who were an absolute pleasure to support. They felt like family and I gained genuine satisfaction from watching them progress over the years.
I moved to Family Services in 2013, ready for a new challenge as my son is now grown up. Since I have been part the Family Services team, I have had the pleasure of working with some of the most fantastic, enthusiastic and dedicated colleagues who really do go that extra mile to make a difference to the lives of the service users and their families. I feel that I was made for this role as I really do understand what parents and carers are going through and I am able to offer them a positive outlook and support them with strategies and experience I have gained during my personal life and career at Autism West Midlands.
I have accepted a secondment to the role of Family Services Coordinator and very much look forward to the challenges the new role will bring.
