Care Catering in the South West of England

As well as the Chair of the South West Region, I am currently Executive Head Chef for St Monica Trust, where I oversee all our care homes and manage the head office site at Cote Lane in Bristol.

The NACC South West Region main focus this year is to attract front line workers as members for example care teams and to bridge the gap between care and catering teams. We would welcome smaller care homes and staff to be members and to share knowledge at our regional meetings.

This year’s Care Chef competition is fantastic and we had the most entries in the south west so I am sure it was hard to select the shortlist, once again the food was of a fantastic standard.

We welcome new members, if you would like to find out more about becoming a member of the South West Region or the Events we hold, please feel free to contact us.
