Leigh has worked for Creative Support since 2002. She completed a Health and Social Care diploma at college and then joined Creative Support at the age of 18 as a support worker.
At 19 Leigh was promoted to Senior Support Worker with Bury Community Services where she ran a service for people with mental health needs.
She continued on a career development pathway and worked through various management roles within Creative Support whilst the organisation supported her through training to become a social worker.
She now oversees a diverse portfolio of services across the Midlands and the North West which includes Community Services, Supported Living Services, Day Services, Respite Services, Extra Care Services and Residential Services.
Leigh has an active family life which she says keeps her on her toes! She likes nothing more than long family walks with the dog and watching a good box set when she gets the chance.
