Published by Jo on 21st January 2022

Registered Manager Bartek Winiecki joined Green Light in December 2021.  Bartek has extensive practical and management experience, having worked in and been responsible for making significant improvements in a number of adult and children’s services prior to joining Green Light.  After completing his company induction training, Bartek joined the Tresleigh team, ‘buddying up’ with existing (award winning) Registered Manager Hannah Rundle, to share experience and allow Bartek to gain an insight into the role of Registered Manager at Green Light.  Tresleigh is a home for four adults with autism and learning disabilities in Grampound Road, between Truro and St Austell, which has been adapted into four two bedroom self-contained apartments.
