Team Leader

Jack Bullock

Contact Jack

Please meet Jack.. Jack is one of our passionate team leaders here at LCA.
I believe that the people who I work with should be able to live the life they want to live with no barriers, and should have access to the good things in life. I believe everyone should be able to have good holidays, nights out, visit pubs, clubs, and restaurants. It is important to have plans and goals in place for day trips and other activities that people may want to attend, to do this I use a person-centered approach and plan with the people I support to work towards their long-term goals.
I have worked in this way for a number of years both in the United Kingdom where I completed my study’s to the equivalent of a diploma in Australia. By working this way I believe that people are empowered to live full and happy lives and the feedback I have received from individuals and their families, friends and other professionals also has confirmed this.
