He has turned around failing care companies into well run and managed organisations. He has experience of successfully working at all levels of the caring profession.
Andrew Milbank has been a Team Leader and Support Worker for over 10 years. He has worked in a diverse range of care settings including Immigration, Learning Disabilities, Elderly, Alzheimer’s and Mental Health. He has set up and established football teams, organised concerts and entertainment events. Andrew is a keen advocate of people integrating into their local communities. He enjoys weekly church bell ringing followed by a sociable pint in the local pub afterwards.
Adrian Cooper has over 25 years in IT, on various platforms and the internet. He designs and writes software, managed teams of software developers and run his own IT consultancy business. Adrian enjoys salsa dancing and has progressed within a year from a feet shuffler to a really improved dancer.
Tom and Andrew wrote a book about their experiences in the care industry which was published in January 2017. It is now being used as a training resource in the South-West and South-East of England. Writing the book has led to a meeting with top level Governmental and Social Care officials in March 2018. After this we applied to Dragons Den, a company called Innovate Design saw our application which resulted in them developing the DirectCareHub app. Since then, we’ve never looked back and are determined to do as much as we can to radically improve key aspects for both Carers/Nurses and Care Providers.
