Ben Lanes

Operations Director

I have worked with people with learning disabilities and autism for almost 25 years, first starting off as a support worker. While it is a very challenging job, I enjoyed it so much and could not believe I got paid to have fun and do things like swimming, watch films and go on holiday. While most of my career has been involved with the provision of support, prior to joining Style Acre in 2012 I worked within care management for six years at Oxfordshire County Council. It was during this time I experienced what great work the charity does and was delighted when the opportunity came to be part of it.
