Gaby joined Change Grow Live in 2018. She provides strategic leadership oversight and leads on the development of a range of services for Change Grow Live across London and the South. This includes ensuring that services are delivering to contract, meeting quality and policy standards and operating within designated budgets.
Gaby has over twenty-five years of experience in the delivery and commissioning of substance misuse, public health and social care services. Her employment history spans a wide and diverse range of health and social care settings (Tier 2 – Tier 4) in both the UK and Austria where she qualified as a Social Worker.
Capitalising on her social work background and experience in the public health arena has enabled Gaby to obtain a comprehensive understanding of the health and social care legislative framework. She has been keen to diversify her service portfolio in light of continuing public sector funding cuts and a tough economic trading environment and has successfully been overseeing a range of substance misuse and health and wellbeing contracts as well as formulating and submitting a range of health public health tenders across London and the South East.
She is committed to providing high-quality person-centred services to all who need them and responding to the diversity of the communities we serve. Within this context, Gaby attempts to promote equality and human rights in all she does.
Gaby is keen to support the development of inclusive environments, reducing health inequalities and ensuring those at risk are being safeguarded. The celebration of people’s strengths and assets is of importance to her and instilling an ethos of co-production with a view to encouraging services users, carers and significant others to become active participants in the design and delivery of services rather than passive recipients.
