Hi I am Linzi and I am the Founder and CEO of ‘Reach North West’
‘Reach North West’ was a project I started as a parent of a child with ASC, I am absolutely passionate about all children deserving an education and fulfilling their dreams and goals in life, being a parent myself and understanding the struggles I am also passionate about supporting each other. After struggling to find services and early intervention that teach functional skills, I decided to found the voluntary group and run some of the services ourselves using behaviour analytical support.
A bit of background about me, I have an amazing son who is my whole world and inspires me to help others and to never give up! He’s been on a behaviour support programme since 2011 and the progress he has made is astonishing.
Professionally I’ve had many years of managing teams on Cruise liners where I started at the age of 19, I loved to travel and loved people so it was a wonderful start for me.
I do have a certification in Autism Awareness and Applied Behaviour Analysis, I am PECS level 1 trained and a Lego - based therapy practitioner. I have completed many training courses in customer service in the USA and have worked and directed and motivated large teams of people. I like to think I am a people’s person and love to support and champion children, parents, staff and volunteers alike.
We have a wonderful dedicated team at ‘Reach North West’ and we are really looking forward to meeting more children, young people and their families – take a good look over the website and join us
We would love to welcome you all to ‘Reach North West’
