Bella Wood, Deputy Manager at Avens Supported Living Northants (ASLN).
Bella Wood is currently the deputy manager of ASLN, supporting Daniel in the day to day management of the supported living service in Northamptonshire.
Bella joined Avens in 2012 after working in residential care as a night staff and team leader for 4 years and gaining her Level 3 in Health and Social Care. Bella quickly moved on from the support worker role, becoming a Head of Support and then Senior Head of Support before being confirmed as the new Deputy Manager in 2014.
When asked about her time with Avens and what she wants to achieve here, Bella said "I love the atmosphere and structure that Avens has. I always had someone to turn to when I was a support worker and now I am helping the staff and customers with the problems I faced only a few years ago. It's really rewarding to be able to give back in this way while helping ASLN to continue to expand and become more successful. I am looking forward to seeing our customers continue to develop and move onto more independent living, and seeing the staff go through similar developments as they become premium carers"
