Glen Care, the specialist care provider, has further strengthened the management team at the London Autistic Spectrum Centre (LASC) in Anerley with the appointment of Sam Gangata as Hospital Director.
A qualified mental health profession, Sam has a wealth of experience in the sector, both clinical and managerial. His skills include managing and building teams to provide high quality, fully compliant care and treatment.
He also played a pivotal role in the commissioning and registration of a brand new 42-bedded service in Aberbeeg, Wales.
Following a six-figure investment in the LASC, based in William Booth Road, Glen Care opened the new service to address the shortage of appropriate high quality care and support placements for young adults with Autistic Spectrum Conditions in London and the South East.
The LASC will aim to repatriate some of the many young people from across the area that have been moved away from their own communities due to the lack of available services locally.
Sam Gangata said: “I am looking forward to the challenges and successes of leading a relatively new, but incredibly innovative, service.
“The service is designed to help people to live as independently as possible so they can gain confidence and self-belief, integrate into the local community and make a valuable contribution to society.
“My aim is to continually improve the quality of care and help achieve positive outcomes for the patients.”
