Meet Team buzz: Aron

Meet Team buzz Aron Thornley

What’s your role within buzz Manchester Health & Wellbeing Service?

I'm a Neighbourhood Health Worker for Chorlton, Whalley Range and Fallowfield. I share this neighbourhood with Laura, my colleague. We work as a team.

Describe a typical day at work…

Emails, community visits, ideas running through my head, making lots of appointments, engaging with local people, collaborating with my colleagues at Fallowfield Library, talking to Laura, catching up on admin... there's a lot of variety.

What do you love most about your job?

I love supporting people in the community who want to start something new and exciting!

If you had to do another job for one day what would you pick?

I'd be a drug and alcohol worker, working in addiction services. I previously worked with people who were struggling with addiction and I still have those people and colleagues in my heart. I met some wonderful people working in the area of addiction services, so one day back there would be fun!

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

I enjoy spending quality time with my daughters, that is the most important thing to me thing now. They are growing up so fast and have their own ideas about things. I like watching sport too, on TV and live.

What’s your favourite thing about Manchester?

The music, the culture, the people, the rivers, and the hills!
