Farah and I have worked together for a number of years both in the UK and internationally. Her moving to Portugal for family reasons didn’t prevent a number of major joint projects taking place.


Key amongst the projects are:


  • A review of mental health services for the Royal Marines Charity

  • Acting as interim manager for a large learning disability charity

  • Working on the development of services for people with learning disabilities and mental health issues in central and eastern Europe;

  • Projects for the Department of Health on mental health and ethnicity

  • Developing supported employment schemes for people with mental health issues

  • And many more.


She brings to all her work – determination: she won’t take no for an answer; an array of training skills for engaging the more hard to reach users and some clients; charm: people usually want to oblige Farah if they can; and modesty.
