Patricia Turner, Health & Social Care Manager
Hi, I am Patricia Turner and I am KVA’s Health and Social Care Manager.
I am back in Kingston after a break of almost 2 years. I previously worked for RBK, in its Voluntary Sector Unit, before it was absorbed into Strategic Business. I was the Children’s Voluntary Sector Worker and established Kingston’s Children’s Network for voluntary and community organisations and worked closely with KVA during that time.
I have worked with many voluntary and community groups in Kingston, particularly in the areas of representation and child protection. I was also a member of Kingston’s LSBC and for a time chaired the Monitoring and Evaluation sub group of the Board.
After leaving RBK I undertook some freelance work and research for Children England and the Safe Network around safeguarding standards and faith organisations. I have been involved with children’s social care voluntary organisation since the late 90’s and I was the Chair of Home-Start Merton for three years between 2000 and 2003.
I live in Raynes Park with my husband and two sons. I am an active member of my local church and manage the parish flower group of 20+ volunteers. I am also a member of the Parish finance committee. In my spare time I love to garden and I belong to a local community choir. We send as much time as we can in France, were we have a house and ski in the winter!
