Newcastle, NE3 1RY

I am the manager for Milldene and a Registered Mental Health Nurse, with nearly 30 years experience working with people with mental health challenges and people with learning difficulties. I have worked at Milldene since 2009 in a variety of different roles and took over as manager in June 2020.   I want Milldene to become a home for its residents and that they are given as much opportunity as possible to do what they want. I hope that Milldene supports the residents through the pandemic and we help get them back out into the community again.
