A new SDS Co-ordinator to guide SDS Options Fife has been announced!
From residential and Day Care Management to the Health Sector and being part of the integration team for SDS whilst working as a Learning and development advisor for SSSC, Ian Fricker brings with him 35 years of experience and knowledge working in a range of Disability organisations.
Being centrally involved from the beginning and on the Board, Ian feels passionate about his job and holds the organisation close to his heart since founding it 13 years ago.
He will oversee the organisations day to day running and has taken over from Jackie Morrison. Previously Jackie created a successful organisation with a good reputation of supporting disabled people and their housing needs. The SDS addition needs to restructure to grow and develop towards a Centre for Inclusive Living to support disabled people in Fife to practice Independent Living in all its aspects.
Ian’s experience brings a participatory approach to work with Disabled People and a belief that we need a structural and systematic change to bring about an inclusive and accessible culture which only comes about with the participation and sharing of perspectives around the current systems that support Independent Living.
Ian hopes to support the tremendous work the team have been doing and particularly develop the SDS Options (Fife) service to provide Disabled People the choice, control and flexibility that matters to them in their support.
