Warrington Voluntary Action. Engaging People. Empowering Communities.

Michael Sheppard - Mental Health

I am a qualified social worker and have been working the field of social care for nearly thirty years now.

I am the Chief Executive of Warrington Community Living which is a local, not for profit social care organisations whose purpose is to support disabled children, young people and adults, older people and people with mental health issues to be active citizens.  We do this through a variety of residential and community based support services.
 
Based in the Gateway, I actively participate in a range of local forums, including for instance, the local Dementia Action Alliance, Mental Health and Learning Disability Partnership Boards, Adult Safeguarding Forum and Residential Providers Forum.  I am also a member of the North West Skills for Care Core Group.
 
I represent the Third Sector on the WBC Policy Group and Commissioning Sub-Group, the Health Summit Providers Sub-Group and the Warrington Health and Wellbeing Board and have been an active member of the Network Hub, representing Supported Housing for the past three years.
 
I see a need for strong representation of mental health and the third sector’s role in supporting it in all of these arenas and would like to spend the next three years focusing my effort in this direction.
