Fiona McClelland

Hello my name is Fiona and I am an Expert by Experience at Inclusion North

 

My Experience

 

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.

Being on time.

My cat  – Truffle.

 

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!
