Gosia has been working since 2002 with education, social and health care professionals, and the learning disability community.

Through research, training development and teaching, Gosia is dedicated to improving the lives of people of various abilities and helping those who work with those groups to personalise their services to meet the needs of their clients. Gosia is currently doing her professional doctorate in social work researching barriers to adoption of person-centred practice within residential settings.
