Gary Cook

I started working at the Next Step Trust back in 2009 and, due to our ever growing popularity, was given the opportunity of Moving and Handling Lead Support worker in January 2016.

Working alongside Helen Lane, I help to ensure that all risk assessments, staff training and the equipment we use are up to date and appropriate for all of our Next Steppers. I often go to activities, such as Rebound, Sailing and Hydro, to implement correct health and safety for Next Steppers and staff alike. I also work in close partnership with the District Physiotherapist and other professionals to make sure all postural management needs are met and reviewed on a regular basis.
