Kerry Gardiner Appointed as Physical Intervention Training Manager at Green Light

I am pleased to announce that Kerry Gardiner will take on the role of Physical Intervention Training Manager full time at Green Light starting June 1, 2024.

Kerry steps into this position following her successful completion of a Diploma in Practice Leadership in Restraint Reduction from the Restraint Reduction Network.  

In her new role, Kerry will lead and oversee the delivery and development of Green Light’s 3-day PBS+ Physical Intervention Training. Kerry will ensure all training continues to meet the standards set by the Restraint Reduction Network and BILD ACT Certification, focusing on Quality Assurance of Training, and the development of Trainers, in alignment with Green Light’s mission, vision, and values.  

Kerry brings a wealth of experience as a Registered Manager and Trainer, having delivered PBS, and physical intervention training for several organisations prior to joining Green Light in 2013. Whilst leading teams as a Registered Manager, Kerry has developed physical intervention techniques, tailored specifically to the needs of the people we support, in collaboration with Professor Brendon Stubbs, Head of Physiotherapy at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.

Kerry’s extensive background in training, combined with her first-hand experience supporting adults with learning disabilities, autism, and challenging behaviour means she is well placed to enhance the training our workforce receives.

Kerry’s new responsibilities will include supporting Registered Managers with their annual restrictive practice audits and action planning, training needs analysis, post-incident debriefs, and overseeing the development of related policies and procedures.

I would like to thank Kerry for being such a dynamic and flexible member of our senior team and wish her every success in this new role.
