Gary is a member of the planning committee for the 2022 international conference.
He joined PWSAI in May 2019 as the association’s first employee and is currently the National Development Manager.
He came to the role with twelve years’ experience in the social care disability sector, eight of which were in residential care supporting adults with Prader-Willi syndrome in a variety of roles from care worker to line manager and subject matter expert in managing behaviours.
He is also a member of Ireland’s Disability Participation and Consultation Network (DPC Network) established by the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth (DCEDIY) with the aim of ensuring that persons with disabilities will be heard directly when the Government makes decisions on policies and laws relating to disability and other important issues.
Gary’s remit as Development Manager is to develop a strong foundation within PWSAI from which the future of PWS awareness, support and services provision can advance.
