Hello my name is Fiona and I am an Expert by Experience at Inclusion North
I have supported family members with a learning disability.
I wanted to be an Expert by Experience at C(E)TRs because I had seen peoples’ experience of using services through the eyes of family members.
I believe I can play a part in helping people come together to make their experience better.
My Skills and Knowledge
Mental health law and the Mental capacity act.
I am a strong advocate for person centred thinking and working.
I can communicate with people and listen to what they say.
What is important to me
To do what I say I will.
To ensure people are treated fairly and heard.
My family and friends.

What people say about me

“Fiona is fair and always listens to what people think and feel.”
Fiona doesn’t give up until a job is finished and done well!
Swimming often – it keeps me feeling well.
