My name is Bill and I am the Director at PIP, having joined in early 2010. My remit is to oversee all aspects of the organisation, including operations, finances and funding, and strategic direction. Working at PIP is a genuine pleasure, being part of a dynamic staff which delivers valuable and effective services to a wonderful and stimulating client group.

It is a lovely, supportive environment to work in, and it is great to see how enthusiastic the students are about gaining their certificates.

My name is Olayinka, I joined PIP as an agency session worker in August 2013.

I understand the importance of promoting individual choice in my job and to empower people with learning disabilities to have control over their own lives, irrespective of their needs.

I also understand everybody in life has choices and rights to their own personal opinion and this is applicable to people with learning disabilities.
