I have over 25 years experience in supporting vulnerable adults and children and have carried out various roles in an extensive health and social care career. I have worked for several organisations, both large and small, providing support to people with learning disabilities, mental health and other associated complex needs. A qualified principal instructor in physical interventions, having spent a number of years in learning and development and working nationally with many care organisations supporting people with complex behaviours that challenge. I am an advocate of PBS and have worked within this framework of delivering quality services for many years making significant changes in the quality of life for people.

I am firstly a Mum of a wonderful young man who has a Learning Disability, Physical Disability and Autism and 5 other little gems (not all so little any more) a dog and 3 horses!

I have over 11 years professional experience in Supported Living, Support at home, Day Services and hydrotherapy services. Plus whole life time of personal experiences, so I understand how difficult it can be at times but also the amazing times.

I have joined the team at MAK due to us all sharing the same values and we all genuinely care about people. I believe we can make a difference and ensure you receive person centred care, this is our main focus. We will also ensure that the support teams are respected and well rewarded for the wonderful work they do.

I am a very driven person who will always go above and beyond. I work well under pressure and am a great motivator. Ensuring I get the best from the team. Encouraging and inspiring the whole team to work together to exceed their own goals and to ensure the support is the best for you.

I have over 15 years experience within health and social care.  Working in a number of different roles starting as a support worker in 2005 and as part of the senior management team in my last role.

I am passionate about ensuring people have every opportunity to live a fulfilling life, empowering them to have control and choice in all areas of their life.

Georgie Vaughan

I decided to work with MAK Community Care as this company really stood out for me compared to others. MAK has a very family orientated feel to it as well as being honest and genuine to their word especially when it comes to the care towards their clients.

A little bit about me is that I enjoy music, board games and movies. I love outdoor activities especially kayaking and Go ape and generally being outside going on nature walks in particular.
