Gavin Howcroft

Expert by Experience Advisor

Hi, I’m Gavin Howcroft. I’m an expert by experience advisor in the health liaison and Purple Star team. I have been in the job now for 9 years. My main focus in my job is to teach health professionals on reasonable adjustments. I really enjoy my job. I feel that everyday I am making something better in the healthcare for people with learning disabilities. I think my job is important as it really helps people understand what it is like to have a learning disability from my eyes.

I am really liking my time working on SCRiPT and helping in anyway that I can. I hope that occupational therapists will learn about TEACH (Time, Environment, Attitude, Communication, Help) and make good reasonable adjustments for people.
