Rory is an experienced operational and strategic leader, bringing extensive skills from his professional background in housing, health, wellbeing, and community safety and development, knowing how important a safe and supported home environment is to wellbeing.

He also has extensive professional experience of how complex people’s lives are and how poor health, inequality, prejudice and abuse can have such a devastating and negative impact.

His work and ethos is to enable people to self care, to use and build on individuals own assets and strengths, but providing support and intervention at times of crisis, which aligns entirely with that of Next Chapter.

Rory brings skills, experience and knowledge of relevant networks and strategic partnerships, including Health and Social Care Economy in North Essex and the Alliance Executive Team leading transformational change in the way health, wellbeing and community services are delivered in North East Essex.
