Why did you choose to work for Waverley Care?

I had worked previously for other charities in Edinburgh but was intrigued when I found the job advertised for Waverley Care. As this was an area all new to me, I had to get the foundation training in blood borne viruses. I think my skills from working in mental health and homelessness helped me transition into Waverley Care relatively smoothly.
