Kelly Edwards

Community Nurse Assessor


I am a Community Nurse Assessor with HomeCareDirect and a registered Learning Disability Nurse (RNLD). I graduated from The University of York with 1st class Honours.  My experience has been mainly working with people from the age of 18, across the spectrum from having a mild learning disability, autism, mental health difficulties, brain injuries, to profound and multiple learning disabilities. A large part of my work has been positive behaviour support. My goal is to deliver person centred, holistic care working in partnership with individuals and families to promote health and well-being. To advocate for the individual, empower and support them to be active partners in their care, promoting their independence and autonomy.

I am proud to work for HomeCareDirect, the company ethos fits with my values of promoting individual choice and control over the right care for the person, delivered by a care team they can choose.

I am currently studying a Master’s degree in Mental Health Science. I have four children so do not have a lot of time to do much else.
