Staff Profile – Louise Pittam

This is part of a series of blog posts which we have created to introduce you to our team of professionals who make up the backbone of our organisation. The posts feature staff across the whole business: in the homes, referrals and admissions, multi-disciplinary therapies, maintenance, etc. They are written as a relaxed conversation, so you can get to know the people in our team.


Louise Pittam is our Admissions and Referrals Manager (based at The Mews), and has been with us since May 2012.¬† Louise’s role includes managing our admissions and referrals team, as well as ensuring that RPC maintain strong local relationships to build an environment that leds itself well to continuous successful referrals into our organisation. This involves her and her team keeping the right people up-to-date with who we are; what we offer; and of course where we are…at a time when we are needed the most.

Louise holds a Business and Social Administration Degree; a Certificate from the Chartered Institute of Marketing; and is also qualified as a PRINCE2 Practitioner.

Her favourite part of working for RPC involves witnessing the positive progression of Service Users which just bolsters her enthusiasm to speak to new people about RPC and what we achieve as part and parcel of our “normal” inclusive service. In fact, just the other day she watched as a Service User flew past her office window riding an adapted bicycle shouting “Come On!”…with the support from the therapist. (A great physical milestone to be able to witness!)

A mini-project which Louise would like to get her teeth into one day is working with our Service Users to formulate a Service User Guide which will be able to tell a story that encapsulates how living at RPC really is for them and how the rehabilitation helps to build life skills and promote independence. Louise thinks this would be handy for new and prospective Service Users to hear the story straight from the people who experience it.

When she does get to relax, Louise takes the opportunity to sleep! She has two young daughters who keep her busy, as well as trying to fit in a spot of exercise with her Bootcamp sessions and amateur dramatics!
