Fiona Jenkins

My role: Operations Manager

Learning Disabilities, Care Act, Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy (IMCA) including Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS), Asking You (involvement) project. I am a member of the Senior Management Team (SMT).

I have over 27 years experience in working in learning disabilities services, beginning this work as a care assistant in Wetherby Day Centre. My interest in people having a voice and equality grew and I took on a secondment from Adult Social Care to support Leeds People First and 11 years on, I have remained in advocacy. I took on advocacy roles and progressed to adult advocacy services manager for IMCA, DoLS, learning disability advocacy, the Asking you project, and more recently the Care Act advocacy service. I support a large dedicated team of specialist advocates to provide great advocacy in Leeds and surrounding areas.
