Safeguarding & Confidential Listening Officer
A little bit about me:
I live in Southsea with my husband Liam, who is the founder of Driving-Pro. I have a grown-up daughter who I enjoy spending time with. I love to travel and try to get away a few times a year but I sometimes find it hard to get him to spend the money! We also love to socialise and enjoy meeting friends for a few drinks.
I’ve always been interested in road safety; one of my earliest memories is of running away from home as a child, but then having to go back five minutes later as I knew I wasn’t allowed to cross the road on my own!
Most of my working life has been spent in the care industry, which was a career I loved. I worked with people with severe learning difficulties and found it very rewarding. When Liam asked me to become Driving-Pro’s Confidential Listening and Safeguarding Officer it appealed to me because it will utilise the skills I developed during my career.
I’m a great listener and am easy to talk to. So if any Driving-Pro pupil has something that they can’t discuss with their instructor. I will be an impartial ear, giving both parties a fair say. I’m pleased to say that so far, we haven’t had any complaints as our instructors are lovely, but should a problem arise, I’m here to help!
