Joanne Blackwell, Manager, Learning Disability & Physical Disability teams

Joanne has completed many roles within social services over her vast years of working at Calderdale Council. Joanne is now the manager of the Learning disability team, her ability to manage two complex teams and still support her staff both in our work and home life is outstanding whilst dealing with her own work and home schedule's.

Joanne is a person who you can turn too knowing it will go no further, she is supportive of the work you complete whilst continuing to encourage you to be the best that you can be. A question is not answered without help, support and advice, no judgement is ever made by Joanne. In the 26 years I have worked in Social services with different managers, I can say that Joanne has been an inspiration to me.
