I am Dave Curran and I have been at Oaktree Farm since day one. I have been a manager for over twenty five years but mostly for BMW. I enjoy working with all types of people and find them interesting. My great passion is motorcycle racing but because I'm old and broken I can't race anymore so tend to watch and read about it now.
I am very passionate about our customers having a voice and try to help them in any way I can to achieve what they want. I like to see them with happy faces.
I have been involved in the health and social care field for most of my life, digressing off in various other fields through the years but always coming back to this enviroment. I started training staff in the health and social care field in 2010 and have since completing PTLLS (Preparing To Teach in the Life Long Sector), and NEBOSH (National General Certificate in Occupational health and Safety), and have completed train the trainer courses in NAPPI (Non Abusive Pyschological and Physical Intervention), fire safety, First aid and Manual handling. With being part of the team at Oaktree farm care i am able to make training bespoke to the needs and wants of the customers and staff.
I have worked in various care settings since 2001, from residential, domiciliary and day services.
I have worked as Support Worker, Activity coordinator, Supervisor, Care coordinator and Trainee Manager.
I also have my Level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care. Level 3 award in Education & Training and a Dementia qualification as well as compulsory training within different companies.
Within my roles, I have worked alongside health care professionals, Multi-disciplinary teams and Social services.
