Lucy Squire
Operations Director

Lucy started her nurse training in 2000, whilst working in secondary care, by this point her interest in mental health grew and so her focus became developing her career further within rehabilitation and service development from internal to external support that was needed by those individuals. Lucy has had opportunities working in various settings from residential to community based. She moved on to manage a talking therapies service, has completed her degree in Business Management and has done further training in an operational remit, such as health and safety, leadership management and more recently HR.  on reflection Lucy feels she has always belonged to mental health and is looking at the operations within services.

When Lucy Isn't working, she enjoys DIY, including painting and upcycling Furniture, only problem is she is always changing her mind. Lucy will attempt any DIY project.
