New head of welfare and safety for people with learning disabilities



The health, well-being and safety of people with learning disabilities is to be in new hands at

MK SNAP.


Steve Oliver is joining the leading disability charity’s management team on Monday (March 21) as Head of Learner Services.  

 

Steve joins MK SNAP from the Children and Families Sector at Milton Keynes Council, where he led his team to enhance services and support the local community. 


Steve replaces Caroline French, who has been a devoted member of the SNAP team and has seen SNAP through many changes over almost 17 years.


Steve has specialised in both pastoral services and safeguarding of vulnerable families in previous roles and brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience. 


He is passionate about empowering and supporting others to reach their full potential and is looking forward to getting started. 


Angela Novell, MK SNAP’s CEO said: “We are incredibly proud and pleased to be welcoming Steve to the team and know that he will bring a wealth of expertise and knowledge to the charity.”


Steve has said of his appointment: "This is an amazing opportunity to work for a fantastic charity. I can't wait to get started with the team and all the learners here who have been so

welcoming already.


I know I have big boots to fill following Caroline, but it is a challenge that I am very much up

for.”


Angela added: “I know everyone who has had the pleasure of working with Caroline will join

me in thanking her for her extraordinary dedication to the work of the charity and wishing her

every happiness for the future.”


Caroline said: “SNAP will always have a special place in my heart. I will miss everyone very much but will still have my fond memories that will always be with me. Thank you to all the staff and learners for making SNAP a very special place to work.”
