Allyson started out as a carer in an older people’s residential home, caring for those who were living with dementia. She soon realised that she wanted to work with people with more complex needs, particularly individuals who were finding it a challenge to get the support they needed. It wasn’t long before she made the switch to working in social care for people with learning disabilities.
Allyson has spent three decades working in this sector: as a Support Worker, a Registered Manager, and has held regional and national operational roles and has also been a Managing Director.
Before joining Consensus in 2018, Ally worked for another provider as deputy director of learning disability & autism services covering London and the South East. Relishing the chance to grow services to better support people with complex needs she was also instrumental in helping individuals and colleagues to grow and develop.
At Consensus Ally ensures quality and best practise across all the services in her region and supports new service developments and innovations that help provide the right support in the right setting for people with highly complex needs.
