Andy Hodkin
Assistant Unit Manager

I am an Assistant Unit Manager. However I am currently on 9 months unpaid leave to allow me to travel around India and South East Asia. I will return to Crocus Fields in June 2017. Dan Berridge is covering my post whilst I am away.


I have worked at Crocus Fields since before the dawn of time, or 2007.


I am a qualified social worker.


I like my job because I get to help create a good service that makes a difference, because I get to spend time helping both the staff and the young people, I get to come up with lots of ideas, and I get to have fun.


I like Crocus Fields because it’s the best place I have ever worked. The kids have a brilliant time, and get to do exciting things. The young people are made to feel wanted, loved and appreciated at Crocus Fields, and that’s because they work with a staff team who are caring, dedicated, passionate, and a little bit daft. .



About me

I like riding my bike and travelling. I eat too much food. I live on a canal boat, which I haven’t sunk yet. I love going to festivals. I am half-good at Tennis. I like to wear shorts, even in Winter.
