Sarah has joined Beacon House after almost 15 years’ working in Education in West Sussex. Sarah is proud to be working at Beacon House in her role as Business Manager, encompassing a broad scope of business functions across both the Cuckfield and Oving clinics. Sarah’s experience of business leadership ensures that she brings a sharp focus to enhancing the experience of clients coming to Beacon House.

Whilst working in demanding and challenging customer facing roles within Sussex Police and British Airways, Sarah recognised the importance of critical thinking, active listening and empathy skills which she brings into all her interactions with Beacon House clients, parents/carers and colleagues.

Sarah’s experiences of primary and secondary education have nurtured a passion for improving outcomes for children and young people together with a strong commitment to safeguarding and child protection. With this in mind, providing a warm, welcoming and safe space across both clinics is a priority for Sarah.
