Welcome to Tewkesbury Fields website. My name is James and I am the General Manager here at the home.
I have been working within the care sector for the last 22 years after starting my journey as a care worker. As soon as I started to work within care I realised it was my vocation. During the last 22 years I have undertaken different roles experiencing different aspects of care until I became a manager in 2009. I believe as managers and care staff we should always strive to ensure residents have choice and independence and are able to live fulfilled and enriched lives.
In addition to my career in care I am also a Special Police Constable for Gloucestershire Constabulary, I am extremely proud to be able to support local communities of Gloucestershire and protect and uphold the law.
