Meet The Team

Ruth Collin

Locality Manager – Scarborough

I returned to the Avalon Group in August 2017 after spending 18 months away, Leading and managing a local domiciliary care agency who support older people, including those who have reached the end of their life’s journey.

My background, knowledge and experience is working with those with differing abilities across Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale. I spent 33 years with the Local authority; which included achieving accreditation with the National Autistic society for three of the services I had the opportunity to lead, gaining recognition for understanding and working practice in order to best support people in a truly person centred way.

Despite my length of service within Social Care, I remain enthusiastic, passionate and committed to making a positive difference for those who need support and their families. I enjoy seeing people reach their potential and reach the goals they strive for.

Working for Avalon gives me a chance to continue my personal aspirations, leading a dedicated team to achieve the best outcomes possible for those we support.

Avalon is a forward thinking charity, and we have the people we support at the heart of everything we do. It’s all about compassion, care and individual achievement, recognising each person’s uniqueness! I’m proud to be back and leading the Scarborough locality into a bright future.

Outside of work I enjoy spending quality time with my family, I enjoy cooking and baking and meals out with friends. Whether at work or at home, it’s great to see people coming together, and to enjoy their company.
