Gary Newton – Regional Manager: South West & Wales

Hello. My name is Gary and I have been responsible for managing a wide range of Independent Living Contracts across the South West and Wales for over 16 Years. I am passionate about my job, particularly following an accident which resulted in me receiving support from Health and Social Care Services for a number of years. I am also an unpaid carer. Having independence, choice and control of our lives is hugely important and is something myself and team advocate, and can support you to achieve through our local Direct Payment service delivery.
