Hi, I'm Chris Sterry. Welcome to my profile!
Chris Sterry's Bio:
In my 2 main occupations at Scottish Widows and Rotherhan Day Services I have obtained some 40 years experience of administration procedures and in those organisations the majority of my years was in some managerial capacity. In my family life, one of my daughters has multiple physical disabilities and severe learning difficulties, which has required considerable contact with the NHS and Local Government departments in Sheffield. As I am now retired, I wish to use my occupational and family experiences to discuss and campaign on related disability issues, mainly in my own locality, but nationally when needs be. Hopefully by doing this I will serve the needs of not only my own daughter but also other similar individuals.
