Serena Long

Women's Lives Leeds Complex Needs Worker since November 2018

What I do

I am the Complex Needs Worker for Women’s Lives Leeds at Basis. I work with a small group of women on a one-to-one basis to help break down barriers to other support agencies including substance abuse, physical and mental health, and benefits. The support clients receive is completely client led and needs-based which means the support I can offer is varied and dependent on the need of the individual.

What I did before

I have worked in supported housing for complex needs for over ten years and prior to this I worked with families.

A little bit about me

I enjoy a days out around the country, especially if I can include some shopping! I like to cook and see myself as a bit of an amateur baker.
