I am a fully qualified teacher and taught with the old LEA in Battersea in the seventies. I spent 12 years in the US working as an editor in educational publishing. From 1997 I was involved with — and eventually ran — fully inclusive out-of-school clubs. In addition, I also worked for 10 years with ‘Crossroads Care’, caring for adults and children. I am very interested in the process of helping every person to find satisfactory work through which they can make their contribution.
