Martina McLaughlinPeripatetic Project Worker

Martina has worked in Day care since 1998 and currently have over 18 years experience with the organisation, supporting individuals with both mental health needs and learning disability. Through my role I have accumulated a vast amount of knowledge and experience. I have completed ‘Induction and Foundation Framework’ – OCN level 2, Drugs and Alcohol Interventions Training, Certificate in Community Mental Health Work – City & Guilds level 3, Certificate in Community Tutor level 3, mandatory training and a wide range of in-house training. I have also completed QCF Level 5 – Diploma in Leadership My remit is to provide cover in schemes in the Western Area, which includes Mental Health, Learning Disability, Floating Support, Supported housing as well as providing continuing cover for Carn Court Day Care as part of a management plan. My main hobby includes Arts and Crafts and I am very passionate about passing on my skills to those members who would have a desire to develop or learn new skills within this field. I get great pleasure from working with members who are lacking in confidence regarding craft work and comment that they are unable to complete a piece of craft work, and within a few weeks they are completing masterpieces.
