Meet The Team

Jill Farmer

Locality Manager – Harrogate

I joined The Avalon Group as a Locality Manager in 2016, having spent the last 30 years working within the social care sector. I am also a family carer, supporting my brother who has an acquired head injury following a road traffic accident.

It’s important to me to work for a charity, and I was also committed to finding an organisation who have strong principles of person-centred working. The Avalon Group fit my criteria and then some, and I’m looking forward to all the fun and challenges that my position will bring in the coming years.

I’m a music lover through and through; that’s my other passion. I love live gigs and concerts and have helped setup and run local music events in my free time. I’m also a keen outdoors person, enjoying gardening (I even have my own allotment!), camping, running, kayaking, skiing, mountain biking, you name it.

I suppose the best way I would define myself is a family person. I have a large and very close family and we do everything together. It’s this dynamic that I know will serve me well in my career at The Avalon Group; which is at its heart a family organisation.
