Yvonne Farenden, Head of DPs and Personalisation I moved down to West Sussex from London in 2007 where I previously worked for Barclays Bank and the Metropolitan Police Service and joined Independent Lives in 2008. This was a new challenge for me having never worked in this sector before. I started as Enquiries Officer and honed my skills from the ground up. I really enjoy my work and the differences it makes to people's lives. Every day brings something new and I am so glad to be part of an organisation which works towards that.
