Barry Southern

General Manager

Welcome to Hundens Park, my name is Barry and I am the General Manager here.

My Career in the care industry spans over 30 years, predominately in the learning disability sector. I have worked in, and gained valuable experience from a variety of positions from staff nurse to operations director. During this time I have gained various qualifications and attended numerous training events which have kept me up to date with current practice developments. My qualifications include teaching and management qualifications and I am passionate about providing person centred care in a therapeutic safe environment.

I am enjoying working at Hundens and being able to pass on my experience and expertise in order to develop and support the service. In my spare time I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends. I also fly fish and enjoy attending live music events - time allowing!
