Iain Brodie Browne
Iain graduated in 1974 with a degree in Politics and began his professional career with Age Concern, before becoming the first permanent employee of Liverpool Association for Mental Health in 1979.
Iain has been crucial to the evolution of the organisation and its response to legislative changes and their effects on our service users. With the introduction of ‘Care in the Community’ the organisation took a big leap forward developing a model of individualised care and support rather than group solutions that largely existed in dealing with people with mental ill health. It is this approach that underpins all Imagine’s services and policies today.
This has led to the introduction of Imagine’s services:
- Gender-specific services
- Life opportunities
- Day opportunities services
- User-led services – services run by service users
- Learning difficulties
Iain manages the organisation ensuring its economic viability, and efficiency, whilst looking for funding opportunities and steers the group towards a healthy future by working with colleagues to make sure we are all going in the same direction with a common vision for the future.
