After completing my studies in Mental Health, I began searching for somewhere to start working. My research led me to applying with ICLA since all the information I could find suggested that they were interested in supporting consumers, respecting their dignity, and offering a person-centred approach that resonated with me and aligned with my view of how best to support those that need it.

I am very happy to say that all my experiences since starting here have shown that ICLA stays true to its values, and this is reflected in how the people we support are treated. I have felt well supported myself by the organisation which has allowed me to focus on what I see as the most important thing, and the core of ICLA, which is providing support and autonomy as best as possible.
