PRIORITEYES OFFICE BASED STAFF
Norma, Operations Manager, Vision Rehabilitation Worker
Hi my name is Norma and I am responsible for managing the team and negotiating contracts. I have worked in Rehabilitation and sensory services for over 20 years.
Being registered Blind, I believe that everyone who experiences sight loss should receive the highest standards of service, in a timely fashion, to meet their needs.
In 2014 I became a member of the newly-launched Rehabilitation Workers Professional Network (RWPN) as I am committed to the formal recognition of our profession and the dedicated people who deliver it.
In December 2016 I completed the training to become a RWPN (Rehab Worker Professional Network) Mentor
Kirsty, Office Manager
My name is Kirsty and I’m the PrioritEyes Ltd Office Manager. I have known Norma for many years and enjoy the challenges and opportunities of working for the company.
Although my role is mainly behind the scenes, I keep in regular contact with the team to ensure their needs as employees are being met.
Being Norma’s support worker when she was delivering rehab services has really helped me to experience at first hand the importance of the work we do. I was pleased to be one of the team representing PrioritEyes at the Vision Pioneer Awards held in the Tower Hotel, London, where the company was a finalist in the “Best Team 2016” category.
Jan, Support worker/PA/Development Manager
I’m Jan and I started working For Norma in May 2007 as her Support Worker when she was delivering rehab in London on a maternity cover contract, so I was already part of the family when PrioritEyes was launched in 2011.
Although my background includes over 10 years working in the disability movement, I had very little prior understanding of what rehab was, and the difference it can make. I still have a Support Worker/PA role, and as Development Manager I represent PrioritEyes at the London Vision Impairment Forum (LVIF) and on the Trailblazer Rehabilitation Apprenticeship Employer Steering Group, to help shape the future of the profession. I also provide admin support to the London Rehabilitation Worker Forum (LRWF), deliver Vision Impairment Awareness Training, and am rarely seen without a packet of chocolate biscuits!
Mark, Support Worker
Alan, IT Support Consultant
My name is Alan and for the last 5 years my company AOA Web Design & IT Services has been working as IT adviser to PrioritEyes covering all aspects of Digital Services from website, graphic design and photography services. Through to computer maintenance both onsite and remote user support across the UK.
Over these many years of working with PrioritEyes. I have come to realise just how frustrating it can be for a visually impaired technology user. To do simple IT related tasks that I take for granted. AOA is always striving when working with Norma and her to team to make things easier were we can through technology rather than a hindrance.
