Joanne Church

Care Facilitator

Hi, I’m Jo and I joined HomeCareDirect as a Care Facilitator in June 2018.

Previously I had worked in Special Needs Education for 27 years as a Teaching Assistant and then latterly as a Class Teacher working with pupils aged between 4-19 years old with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties, Severe Learning Difficulties, Extreme Challenging Behaviours and Autism.

After leaving SEND education I worked for a local charitable organisation who supported people with Direct Payments. Both roles have given me the desire to continue to help people live their lives to their full potential and use my knowledge and experience to assist them.

When I am not working I enjoy caravanning with our “vintage” (old) caravan Betsy with my husband, leaving my son in charge of our two dogs, or is that the dogs in charge of my son?
