Neil Byers One Stop socialNeil Byers joined the One Stop Social team in January 2017. Neil previously worked with LWDP, which sadly closed after many years of supporting the Adult Social Care Sector to improve the quality of care delivered by staff to their clients.

The good news is that we have offered Neil the opportunity to join our team so that he can continue to help improve the care delivered across Lancashire in the way he did during 14 years with LWDP.

Matt had this to say about Neil:

“I am very excited and pleased that Neil has decided to join our team. I have worked with him in his previous role and know how highly regarded he is within the Adult Social Care Sector.

He shares the same passion for improving standards within the Social Care and Social Work Sector as we do here at One Stop Social. He has extensive experience in helping Care Providers with recruiting and in the retention of the right staff (which is a major issue for managers in this Sector). He will continue his work as a Relationships Manager and I am already seeing his input into developing the practices and services offered by One Stop Social.”

If you want Neil to come out and meet with you to discuss how you can access One Stop Social’s services, feel free to email him at or alternatively you can contact him on 07377 712002, and we can arrange a visit.
