Emma got involved with learning disability when she was just 16, volunteering at Brentwood Special School in Timperley. The pleasure she got from working with the children was a lasting one When she joined Stockdales years later, she was delighted to meet again some of the very same people!
Emma trained as a nurse at Manchester Royal Infirmary, and worked on a busy surgical ward. Even though she enjoyed the clinical setting, her heart lay with learning disability. Emma didn’t hesitate when the chance came to work at Stockdales as a senior nurse. Since then she’s been committed to making a real difference as part of an inspiring and dedicated organisation.
She became CEO in 2002 and proudly continues to lead Stockdales through the ever-changing landscape of social care. In her spare time, Emma is a keen horse rider.
“I can honestly say there’s never been a dull moment at Stockdales. My work is challenging, rewarding and humbling – it’s a real privilege to be part of such a dedicated and exceptional team.”
