Jessica has over thirteen years of experience in the support sector and helping those with mental health conditions, learning disabilities, and autism.

As the newly appointed divisional director she will be leading the supported living service as well as developing further community support for clients across Somerset.

Jessica said she is thrilled to be promoted to the new role and is keen to help grow the service and the support it can offer.

She added: “My new role is a big step forward in my career. It’s so important that the support we provide is the best it can be - we’re always looking for ways to improve and develop the care we give to clients.

CEO Angie Lyons-Redman said she is looking forward to working closely with Jessica to grow the service.

“Since joining the team, Jessica has worked hard to strengthen the community support side of the service.
