Ceri Mills

Hello, I am Ceri, and I am very proud to be the General Manager of Hickathrift House. Welcome to our website!

I have been with Hickathrift House since 2009. I started as a Carer and was promoted to Senior Carer shortly after and, before long, I had worked my way up to Unit Manager. I was then appointed as the Deputy Manager in 2014, prior to becoming the Acting General Manager in April 2018. During my time here, I have worked hard to gain an NVQ Level 2 and 3 in Health & Social Care and I am currently working towards my Level 5 in Leadership & Management.
