Jonathon Shield

I started working in health and social care as a support worker in 2010 and in 2023 I joined Liaise. At Liaise I am a Positive Support Coordinator but through my time in the sector I have been, a Support Worker, Support Team Coordinator, Support Manager, Peripatetic Support Worker and Peripatetic Support Manager and Registered Manager.

As a Positive Support Coordinator I help the services that I work in to work in a more positive and proactive way. I have my Level 5 QCF in Health and Social care and I am a qualified PBS (Positive Behaviour Support) coach with BILD (British Institute for Learning Disabilities) and a qualified PROACT-SCIPr Trainer. Using these qualifications and my 13 years experience I aim to improve the quality of life for the people we support by helping staff to find the best ways to communicate with and build relationships with them.

I feel privileged to work with Liaise to try and achieve this in the position that I am in. It has always been a passion of mine to make sure autistic adults not only get the right support but also within the right setting to drastically improve their quality of life.
