Disability Stockport appointments aid the growing needs of the community

As a voluntary organisation serving the Stockport community, Disability Stockport has bolstered their team in response to the growing needs of a community as a consequence to the coronavirus pandemic.

Disability Stockport has made several new appointments to aid the growing needs of the community.

The support that their team members have given to the community and their members ,throughout the recent lockdown period, has been awarded with well-deserved praise from CEO Kieran McMahon: 

“Over the past few months we have been working on some new developments to shape Disability Stockport moving forward, making real progress in response to the changing need due to the lockdown and other restrictions that would not be possible but for the hard work of our fund raisers.”

Sara Crookdake has now added the role of Assistant CEO (Chief Officer) to her current CIL (Centre for Independent Living) Manager to give additional support to Kieran; Jane Bartlett has been promoted to General Manager, and will continue to manage Outreach as well as taking a bigger role in workforce management. The third senior role is the appointment of Kristan Dewell as Financial Controller, supported by Adele who is now Finance Manager. Newly appointed finance worker James Ancliffe will assist Adele for two days a week. The reason for this expansion in finance is due to the big increase in Outreach, managing individual accounts and other fee earning work.

Two brand new Crisis Workers, Fiona Tierney and Geraldine O’Malley will take on some of the additional work that has arisen in recent months; an additional autism specialist will bolster the team. Three new Outreach workers – Sue Harney, Jane Lusby and Natalie Wilbin – will meet the growing demand for community support and activities.

All will be available and working from 3rd August to add much needed additional support.

Kieran added:

“I hope everyone is pleased to hear some positive news for a change and while we are all hoping to get everything back to normal soon, we have at least made some real progress to responding to the changing need due to the lockdown and other restrictions.

“A big thank you to all our team including those that helped to raise funding and provide the evidence to make this all possible.”
