Alison Light - Host

What is your role at Belong? I am a host on the households within Belong Atherton village.

What do you enjoy most about your work? Interacting and engaging with customers; encouraging them to come along and bake, cook and clean with me is always rewarding as we all get so much out of it.

What are its hidden challenges? Customers' needs differ and its important I can always ensure they have something desirable to eat. This can be difficult for customers living with Dysphagia. I had one gentleman request toast who was on a puree diet; it was all he wanted.  It was difficult but I managed to make him moulded bread stained with chicken gravy granules. He loved it and it made both of us really happy.

How do you like to unwind? I enjoy an evening at the local pub or an afternoon spent baking with my family.

If you had to sum yourself up in three words, what would they be?  Happy, creative, enthusiastic.
