Laura Russell

Assistant ARC Manager

Laura started working for Cavendish Care in 2007 as a support worker at Chippings house. While working at Chippings she enjoyed taking the clients out to their activities and around the community as well as supporting them to gain experience and independence within their homes.

She successfully completed her NVQ Level 3 in Health and Social Care while working at Chippings.

In 2010, Laura decided that she wanted to experience working in another house, so she transferred to Poplars and spent a further 4 years there as a support worker.

Laura enjoyed being a support worker and felt her confidence was growing, but needed to express her outside hobbies within the company.

So, in 2014 when the advertisement went up for an Activity Co-ordinator she thought “Yes this is me, I know I can do this role and deliver arty/crafty me across to the client and tenants.”

Laura was delighted to accept the role and be given the chance to run several types of activities which include arts and crafts, cookery, yoga and many more.

“In this time, I’ve completed an ASDAN trainer course and Cavendish Care are now a Registered ASDAN Centre.” (ASDAN programmes are structured, ‘light touch’ courses that promote active learning and progression and reward achievement).

Back to team

I look forward to continuing my journey with Cavendish Care gaining more experience and moving up the ladder knowing that Cavendish provide a high standard of care for our client and tenants.
