He has worked for Care Quality Commission and its predecessor organisation Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI) for almost 9 years. Whilst working at the Care Quality Commission Barry worked as a national lead on learning disability projects and has a good understanding of Transforming Care.

Barry has a post- graduate degree in autism, is a qualified tutor and has been trained by the British Institute of Leaning Disabilities in positive behaviour support and functional assessments. Barry is a qualified behaviour support coach.

Barry has spent years championing the rights of people with disabilities encouraging care providers, education establishments and employers to think about the services they offer and where necessary make adjustments in order to effectively and meaningfully meet the needs of people with intellectual disabilities.

Barry has delivered presentations to local authorities and Royal College of Psychiatrists on how to provide an effective personalised service for people with learning disabilities and/or autism.

Barry has an underling passion to make societies more inclusive where everyone is recognised
for their potential and not their disabilities.
