Barbara is an excellent communicator and networker, who excels in cutting edge environments, she stands upon a proven track record of successfully co-ordinating multiple projects to effective conclusion.

Properties in a Care Provider capacity I have had first-hand experience of the expertise they bring to the specialist housing market, working with individuals, families, commissioners, funders and the care community at large to develop and deliver bespoke, affordable, high quality accommodation for individuals with specialist housing needs. They make it seem so easy and never fail to deliver!
'Like T.P Properties, I have prized and delivered the personalisation agenda for decades and my new role within T.P Properties will allow me to continue to conduct myself with the utmost integrity which has enabled me to develop trust relationships both internally and externally, and will inspire confidence in the company, myself, and my team.

'Personally, I thrive in fast-paced environments that require creativity, organisation, dynamic thinking and decision making; and work well in circumstances that others may consider challenging. Operating with those such as Paula, who I have been inspired by since the beginning of my career, I believe I will help to continue to create a company which is truly entrepreneurial and philanthropic at its heart. I am proud to belong to, and be working with such an innovative group of individuals’
