Dave’s first role in health and social care was as a volunteer in a needle exchange in 2003.
Since then, Dave has worked across housing/homelessness, outreach, rehabilitation, substance misuse, offending, young people, peer provision and complex needs.
His work in these areas has been within a range of roles, including: voluntary, service user-facing, teaching, advisory, mentoring, managerial, director and trustee positions.
Dave has a strong track record of building strategic and partnership focused delivery of safe, effective, caring and impactful services for the people that need them the most, making sure they are accessible to all.
Leading our activities in the North-West of England, Dave is responsible for translating organisational strategic intent into deliverable outcomes, that give both value for money and a positive impact for the communities Via works in.
