Sarah Jones – Chief Executive 

12573021_10100449441111052_2837215072599235366_nI’m Sarah, and I’m the Chief Exec. I’ve worked for Mencap Liverpool since July 2009 and I love it!  I’m the boss so I spend half my time supporting the staff team and the other half developing new project ideas and relationships with funders and partner organisations.

When I’m not working I love baking cakes, pottering in my little garden, training for marathons and Stand Up Paddle boarding.


Jeanette McHugh – Directions Team Manager 

JeanetteI joined Mencap Liverpool & Sefton in February 2020 (although I’d got to know some of the team when I worked for another organisation).  My role involves delivering the Directions project, as well as empowering our members I give confidence to all around me. My team describe me as ‘Mother Earth’ as I’m calm, positive and honest.

My family and friends are very important to me, I have been with my husband for 40 years and would be lost without him. Together we share two children, two granddaughters and we have a new grandson!  Home is a special place for me where everyone can come back and stay, it’s also where my 3 dogs keep me company and make me smile.



Jo Bruce – Independence Trainer 

I joined Mencap Liverpool & Sefton in Jan 2020.  My role is to empower people to be the best version of themselves. My team describe me as the ‘entertainer’, I’m witty, kind, honest. I believe honesty is at the heart of everything.
I am a people lover so can get away with being a wee bit cheeky.

I welcome everyone as an old friend that I haven’t met yet. My family are the most important thing in the world to me and I love spending time with them. I wake up each morning wanting to make each day the best it can be, for everyone I come across, and I take it as a new chance to be the best person I can be – I don’t often achieve either but that’s my goal.


Siobhan Waters – Development Manager 

SiobhanI joined Mencap Liverpool & Sefton two weeks before the first COVID Lockdown in March 2020. My role is to develop our charity and make it visible! Inspiring Liverpool to see people with a Learning Disability differently, my life aim is to create equality for all. My team describe me as their own personal cheerleader, I’m enthusiastic, positive, kind and a breath of fresh air – it’s all about your energy!

I bounce off and surround myself with positive people and am a threat to all, as I love learning and I’m capable of anything I put my mind to! I love people, adore my family and live for seeing my girls on a weekend. Being the social butterfly I am, I thrive when working with people to collaborate wonderful things, the sky has no limit…..
