Meet the Swanley Team
General ManagerI have worked in the Social Care sector for the past six years, having previously been a Captain in the British Army. I love working in Social Care as you can make a difference to our residents’ lives on a daily basis. I’m passionate about working as part of a team who ensure that residents are at the centre of everything we do. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my wife and three young sons. I like to run, play rugby, read and fix things with my three little helpers!

Senior Client Relations ManagerI am delighted to have joined the Oakland Care family as Senior Client Relations Manager for Birchwood Heights and Maplewood Court. My experience in the role goes back 11 years now, including the commissioning of a new care home. Nothing gives me greater satisfaction than assisting families to explore full time care options, whilst sharing insights during what is often a stressful time for them. Outside of work, my biggest passion has always been travel, which hopefully will become easier again in the fullness of time!
