As well as setting up and managing Time Specialist support, Tori is also a qualified speech and language therapist and has worked with children with autism since qualifying in 2000.

She was inspired to set up a specialist support agency when she was studying at university.

 “After putting up an advert for babysitting in a specialist nursery where I was doing a clinical placement I was overwhelmed at how much families seemed desperate for this kind of support. It was then I realised the importance of just having a couple of hours off to do normal things like shopping or to clean the bath”

 She set up Time Babysitting in 2008 and changed the name to Time Specialist Support in 2012 to reflect the changing nature of the service.

“We began to recruit more and more older children, and families wanted us to take their children out rather than staying in. Our support workers are much more interactive and hands on than the title babysitter suggested”

As well as running Time Specialist support, Tori is also the co-editor of Aukids ( Magazine.

In her free time Tori likes to spend time with her son, Remy and  her two dogs, Tilly and Ted. She loves travelling, playing tennis and  sings in a weekly group.

Ally started working for Time in July 2016 as the new Service Manager. She has worked with children and young adults with autism and special needs since 2003. She has a broad spectrum of experience ranging from working for the  Seashell Trust to the NHS.

“When the chance arose to work for Time I found it was an opportunity too good to pass up, we are a forward thinking company that is dedicated to the welfare of the families entrusted to us. We constantly strive to improve our service and work within a dedicated team to ensure this happens”

In her spare time Ally enjoys cooking, long walks with the dog and camping, although after a weekend away with her 2 teenage boys and the dog she found out that 2 teenagers and a wet dog don’t go well in a tent so is definitely a fair weather camper!

Bradley started working for Time in January 2017 as an Admin Assistant and the role naturally evolved into working more closely in the recruitment side of things, so much so that his official role became Recruitment Coordinator – bringing in great new support workers for our service users.


I initially worked for Time on a part-time basis and eventually had to find full-time work but after almost 2 years away, in a twist of fate, the same recruitment role became available on a full-time basis and I jumped at the chance to work for this great company again.


Having shadowed sessions, I’ve witnessed the hugely positive impact the support has on our service users and their families, and to be part of this in some way gives me a great sense of satisfaction at the end of each day.


Bradley has a degree in Biology and in his spare time he plays guitar, sings, and writes songs. He also likes cycling, and walking in the UK’s national parks.

Sophie started working for Time Specialist in May 2018 as a support worker whilst she was studying Psychology and Criminology at university. Sophie has since graduated from university and joined the core team- starting out as a Field Supervisor and then moved into the position of Assistant Manager. Sophie still continues to support our service users. 

“I was excited when the opportunity arose for me to join the core team at Time. I love the fact that my new role still enables me to do support work as I love going out in to the community meeting and building relationships with Time’s service users and their families. Support work is more rewarding than I ever could have imagined and working with children has taught me that it really is the little things in life that make all the difference! I like the fact I had the chance to meet a lot of our families as a support worker first and was able to develop some close relationships with those that I did meet, this is definitely something that I think will assist me in my new role as Field Supervisor.”

When Sophie isn’t working she loves to spend time socialising with her family and friends. She enjoys trips to the cinema, going to the gym and sunny days out!
