Welcome Independent Living
Lauren caught up with Mark Coup from Welcome Independent Living on Workplace Of The Day for Hebden Radio on the 20th of June 2016.
Mark Coup lives in Blackshaw Head and has over 25 years experience working in the NHS and social care sector. He is a Registered Nurse in learning disabilities with a degree in Healthcare management. Mark has also conducted research in: The effect of food additives in a male with Phenylketoneuria - A retrospective co-relational study on the benefit of nurse led epilepsy clinics.
Mark is married to Debbie and they have 5 children, chickens, ducks, pigs and sheep on their smallholding which enables Mark to keep busy (or hide) on a weekend. On Wednesdays Mark escapes for a couple of hours to drink good ale in the New Delight and play pool badly. He also suffers from a rare disorder known as ‘being a Bradford City football supporter’. Debbie and Mark are proud to be foster carers.
Mark believes in making a difference locally and is passionate about innovative solutions. He believes in business models that are ethically right but being a typical Yorkshireman he also believes in value for money.
