Joanne Thompson

Locality Manager - Skipton

I joined the Avalon family in January 2019 as the Locality Manager in Skipton. I have worked in the care sector since 2001, starting off as a relief worker in a children’s respite unit. From there I have trained and worked hard to promote and develop outstanding services in the care sector.

My last role was working for the local Authority as a Deputy Manager for a short breaks service for children with disabilities. I am very passionate about my work, and strive to succeed in everything I do for our customers, families and staff I work with.

Outside work I enjoy spending time with my daughter and husband and ensuring we have quality time together as a family. Our hobbies include walking and spending time with friends and most of all having fun!

I am looking forward to my future at Avalon and working alongside a great team.
