Rachael Dunn

Registered Manager

Over the past 13 years of working in Health and Social Care, I have worked with adults with learning disabilities in a variety of environments, ranging from community-based services and one to one packages of care.

 

I joined Capricorn Cottage’s team in 2019 and have progressed through a number of different management roles, until recently being promoted to the position of the Registered Manager.

 

I enjoy working with people and making a difference, ensuring to reflect our Core Principles: Respect, Dignity, and Independence.

 

My philosophy is to drive forward a person-centred approach, embedding an ethos that puts the person we support at the centre of all decisions made, thus enabling people we support to have greater choice, control, and autonomy over their lives.

Ashlynn has worked in Health and Social Care for the past 7 years. Ashlynn’s career began in social care, working with the elderly and focusing on dementia care.

In 2021 Ashlynn made the transition from elderly care to working in Capricorn Cottage, supporting adults with a learning disability, Autism, and behaviour that can be seen as challenging.

Ashlynn’s ethos and passions are very much centred around Valuing People.

Poppie has worked in Health and Social Care for around 10 years, working in a range of residential settings and domiciliary services.

Since joining Capricorn Cottage’s team in 2020, Poppie has thrived in providing care for the people we support, who have a range of care needs.

Poppie ensures that every person is treated with the utmost dignity and compassion.

Gill has worked in Education, Children Services, and Care for 25 years, working in a wide range of services, including supporting children and their families, young people, and people with a learning disability.

Gill ensures every member of the team receives a detailed and in-depth induction and completes all mandatory and relevant training for their role.

Gill is committed to ensuring people we support are only supported by a highly skilled and dedicated workforce.

Chris has worked in Administration for over 20 years, working in a wide range of services, until joining Capricorn Cottage’s team in early 2021.

An integral role in the day-to-day running of the service, Chris has many responsibilities, including auditing the finances of the people we support, and facilitating a robust recruitment process.

Chris is committed to ensuring the smooth running of the service, and always makes time in her busy day to talk to people we support.
