Lauren Butler

Head of Business Development

What is your role?

I am the Head of Business Development.

What is your work history?

I’ve worked in social care for just over 12 years. Prior to that I worked in the construction industry but I can never see myself leaving social care now – it’s addictive!

What inspires you?

A large part of my role involves working with people and their families to set up the perfect home and support for them. I absolutely love working in this co-productive manner and there is nothing better than seeing someone thriving in their new home with families able to live their lives knowing that their loved one is happy.

What's your favourite thing to do outside work?

I love to go on long walks and to socialise with friends with a glass of wine or two. That’s when I’m not running around after my two teenage children taking them to various sporting events.

What's the best piece of advice you've ever been given?

Never assume anything. 

What’s one thing about you that people would be surprised to learn?

I have a huge family and my claim to fame is that a few years back we were interviewed on This Morning and in the national newspapers because there were over 130 of us travelling together on a holiday abroad!
