A career highlight
My favourite memory: taking the two years needed to successfully liberate a woman with learning disabilities from the prison that her support had become, into her own flat with one support worker during the day and none at night (with the help of assistive technology) instead of the hulking "minders" she had endured in hospital. Serious negotiations with local authorities and commissioners was needed as she was deemed "dangerous", which re-assessment and some changes would have shown was untrue. No re-assessment had been done for years Other highlights include rescuing a failing charity and repurposing governance in the largest cluster of prisons in Europe.
