STAFF PROFILE – JAY
Hi there! My name is Jay and I have been working for York Personal Support since August 2016. Before I moved to York, I worked as a Registered Social Worker with children and their families and then accepted a seconded Social Worker role with the Youth Justice Service.
After a significant period of time however, I decided to return to support work, which I believe to be more rewarding and beneficial to the people I want to work with. I love supporting on a one to one basis and thoroughly enjoy working with a variety of different and interesting individuals on a daily basis.
In my spare time, I spend as much time with my children as possible, as family time is especially important to me. I live in a rural village near Malton and enjoy long walks in my local area with my dog Brew and travel most weekends to the different beaches along the East Coast.
WE ARE NOW AN ACCREDITED DSA NMH PROVIDER!
Due to the hard work and dedication of our team, York Personal Support is now an accredited DSA (Disabled Students Allowances) Non Medical Help Provider!
This means that we can provide specialist support to students, such as mentoring, one-to-one study skills, note taking and mobility and orientation.
We look forward to an exciting year ahead with our students.

We sadly say goodbye to Janis Bradley who we wish every success for the future.
