Wojciech Kowalczyk – Manager, The Gables, Starbeck
Wojciech (pronounced ‘Voi-tek’) is Manager at The Gables, having worked his way up to this position after joining the facility as a Support Worker. Wojciech has also worked at Park Way, before returning to The Gables where he began.
Wojciech is originally from Poland, where he studied Social Sciences at the University of Warsaw, specialising in social work. He moved to the UK in 2005 to pursue a career in the care sector. He fulfilled several supported living roles, working with the elderly and people with disabilities, before joining Homes Together in 2011.
He loves working with people and is committed to helping those less fortunate than himself to do his part in creating a fairer and more equal society. He has a passion for advocating for service users who are unable to speak for themselves to ensure they are well looked after and receive the attention they need.
Not only does Wojciech strive to make life as comfortable as possible for service users, but for staff as well. Teamwork is crucial to what Homes Together does and Wojciech recognises the importance of listening to issues and working as a team to overcome them.
Outside of work, Wojciech likes to spend time hiking in his beloved Yorkshire Dales; he can’t imagine living anywhere else! Other keen interests are history and meeting and learning about new people.
