Leesa Howes

Director of Clinical Services

Professional Background & Relevant Experience

I have had over 25 years’ experience in health and social care. I worked in neurosciences from being a Staff Nurse to Senior Sister. I have also worked in brain injury, autism, learning disabilities, challenging behaviour and dementia in the voluntary and private sectors in various management roles until joining Humankind in January 2018.

How I Came to Work at Humankind

Having had recent experience with individuals coping with early onset dementia, often with drug or alcohol dependence being a contributing factor, I wanted to move into the field. A colleague informed me about the good work of Humankind, and I was excited to return to the voluntary sector. 

What I Enjoy About Working at Humankind

I love the fact that Humankind supports such a variety of vulnerable people. The varied skills and experience of all the teams is so valuable; we can draw on each other’s expertise to best help the people we support achieve their goals.
