Daniel Andrews, Manager of Avens Supported Living Northants (ASLN).
Daniel has been recently confirmed as the Registered Manager of ASLN. Daniel has obtained an NVQ Level 3 in Health and Social Care and the Diploma Level 5 in Leadership.
Daniel has been employed by Avens since 2009 and within this time he has worked in various roles, from Support Worker to Manager.
Daniel says: "Quality services are not static, and must respond to the needs of the people who use them. This requires myself to lead by example, advocating for service improvement, and supporting all members of staff to deliver it. It is about reconciling multiple, sometimes conflicting, perspectives and it involves balancing budgets and regulatory pressures against the views of staff and the individuals whom we support; however, there is also considerable room for making choices and a proactive manager can work with these factors, engaging with a variety of points of view so that services can be challenged and, ultimately, improved, ensuring we achieve the best outcomes for both staff and the individuals whom we support."
