About Adela Warrington, Regional Director
How long have you worked in Social Care?
I have worked in Social Care since 1993. I started as a support worker for people with learning disabilities and with other support needs and I progressed to a home manager. I have worked in a variety of settings as a manager, but my last job was as an Operations Manager which I did for 18 years.
What type of person are you?
I am a very happy, friendly person and enjoy the company of others, although sometimes I do need to be by myself to make sure I get my work done. I am consistent, honest with advice and approachable; no question is a silly one! I love walking my dogs, Yogi and Riley and spending time with my family and three grandchildren. I also enjoy holidays in the sun.
What is your job at Kingwood?
My role is to work within the team to make sure that we are empowering the people we support to live independently and as part of their community. I need to make sure that people are supported in the way they want, are receiving quality support and value for money.
