Meet Sharon – Registered Manager for Leaf Complex Care, Exeter.
One of the reasons why Sharon chose a career in social care is that she is a busy mum of four boys (two who have physical disabilities) and a sister who has a physical and learning disability. Realising that she needed a degree to do what she really loved and know she wanted to make a real difference she went to university at the age of 40. And, 12 years later here she is – a Registered Manager for Leaf Complex Care, Exeter.
Having worked in various roles across social care, Sharon is a passionate advocate and supporter for those living with complex care needs, ensuring their voice is heard.
Sharon Jones is a highly experienced Care Manager with over 25 years’ experience in complex care, specifically in advocacy and children’s services, offering a wealth of both personal and professional experience. She has been an Operations Manager for a registered charity supporting adults with learning disabilities and mental health difficulties and a Development Manager for a user-led organisation supporting adults with physical, leaning disabilities and sensory impairments – and the carers that support them.
Since moving to Devon, Sharon has taken on several interim roles across the social care sector gaining experience in local authorities, including working as Interim Manager of residential children’s homes for young people with learning disabilities and adverse childhood trauma.
Sharon moved to Devon five years ago with her partner and lives just outside Exeter and has two cats. She enjoys all types of crafts and recently taught herself how to crochet.
