Dave Targett

Service Development Lead

Professional Background & Relevant Experience

I have worked in the Health & Wellbeing sector since 2003, delivering services in housing/ homelessness, substance misuse, offenders, young people, peer provision and mental-health, as well as within governance, quality assurance, process planning & data analysis. I’ve worked in a range of roles, including; client facing, teaching, mentoring, managerial and trustee/ director positions.

How I Came to Work at Humankind

I wanted a return to operational management after a period of time working centrally in quality, governance & performance. A role was advertised for an organisation I had not then heard of (Humankind, then DISC) managing a Manchester service. It looked interesting and I applied! That was over 7 years ago.

What I Enjoy About Working at Humankind

I believe in the importance of delivering safe, effective, caring and impactful services to the people that need them the most, in ways that are accessible to those people. The support and autonomy Humankind gives me to develop my services, role and self, enables me to deliver those impactful services.
