Our Team






Annette Ravenscroft

Chief Executive Officer

I am the C.E.O. and Responsible Individual for Cartref Residential Homes. I was initially employed in 1998 as a book-keeper in the Administration Department on maternity cover, and have progressed through the ranks to my current role achieving QCF Level 5 Leadership & Management in Health & Social Care and becoming an Associate member of the CIPD along the way.  At Cartref we pride ourselves on the high quality of care we offer to all our residents who are the focus of everything we do.

I am the Registered Home manager for Cartref Lake Road East.  I have been employed at Cartref since 2006 and was initially employed as a Care Assistant attaining Level 4 in Leadership and Management for Care Services in 2012.  I transferred from Cartref Station Road in the same year when I was appointed as Registered Home Manager of Cartref Lake Road East.  Lake Road East has a strong staff team the majority of whom have been with us for many years, enabling us to provide continuity of care at all times.
