Phil’s a jolly good Fellow

ELCAP colleagues turned out in force to pass on their very best wishes to Phil Bartlett, who has left ELCAP to take up the position of Team Manager with The Richmond Fellowship Scotland.

Phil joined ELCAP in 2005, starting work as a Support Practitioner.  Over recent years, he has been a key member of the charity’s team of Operational Leads, managing community-based services and breaks from caring in Midlothian.

Reflecting on his 16 plus years with ELCAP, Phil said:

It’s time for a new challenge but I will always be very grateful to ELCAP for the opportunity to work and progress my career here.

I have worked with ELCAP for 16 years, and the last eight years, leading the team in Midlothian. have been the most enjoyable. We achieved considerable growth in the area, delivering on a number of complex transitions, and opened a new respite service to allow carers to take a well-deserved break. These have been huge achievements and personally very pleasing.  Our successes have been made even better by all the positive relationships and friendships I have made along the way.

I wish everyone at ELCAP all the very best for the future.”

ELCAP Chief Executive, Paul White, said:

“Phil’s care and consideration for the individuals we support and their families is second to none and will be much missed.  The impact he’s had on so many lives and his commitment to our charity over many years are to be celebrated.

We are sorry to see Phil go, but pleased that he will continue to make a difference in social care.   We’re always proud when ELCAP colleagues progress their careers and I’m sure that Phil will go from strength to strength in his new role.  We wish him well on his next adventure.”
