Warrington Voluntary Action. Engaging People. Empowering Communities.

Derek Jones - Disability

I have been employed by Warrington Disability Partnership for more than 10 years working as Employment Team Co-ordinator and for just over a year as Acting and more recently, Chief Operation Officer.  My experience in contract management includes target driven contracts covering employment, skills and learning dealing directly with DWP, SFA, WBC and ESF/ERDT funding streams.  In addition I have managed targeted programmes supporting disabled people into training, employment and learning opportunities, alongside lifelong learning for people with learning disabilities and specific programmes for individuals with mental health problems.  
 
I am an active supporter of the Warrington Disability Forum and am involved in strategic partnerships across the Borough.  I fully engage in all subject matters and steering groups and have the commitment, time and energy to meet the aspirations and to represent the opinions of the disability sub sector.
