Returning to Practice: My Journey

Aspire's founder and Occupational Therapist, Susanna is featured in an article published by the Health and Care Professions Council, in it she shares her journey and how she came to run Aspire Creating Communities as an Occupational Therapist. 

Susanna overcame long-term challenges including depression, anxiety and underconfidence to return to the HCPC Register in 2019. 

"I find tremendous joy in using my occupational therapy expertise to underpin and guide everything we do at Aspire."

Thank you to Macs Trucks! 

We are delighted to announce that in our Christmas fundraising activities, we raised just short of £600 for Aspire Creating Communities, who run a network of vital community groups for over 55's across the kirklees area.

Susanna Shotter, CEO of Aspire said "I am delighted that Mac's trucks have chosen to support Aspire this year. Every pound and penny raised goes towards Aspire building safe and welcoming communities across Huddersfield for anyone over 55 to find a place of belonging. We are really excited to partner with Macs Trucks - thank you so much for raising nearly £600 for us!"
