Our Team, Our Values,
Magic Life was formed in 2013 by a group of professionals with a genuine commitment, interest and concern for vulnerable adults with Mental Health diagnosis, Learning Disabilities and Autism. Magic Life Limited now operates twelve supported living homes in North London, Essex and Hertfordshire.
We believe in delivering high-quality treatment, tailored to the individual’s needs within a caring community. Every individual is actively involved in planning and decision-making from assessment onwards, as we believe this gives them control over their own lives.

Director of OperationsSee profile
Director of OperationsI started my nurse training in 1984 and I worked as a Registered Nurse in the NHS, in the private sector in a variety of settings. In 2013 I became the registered manager of a 112 bedded nursing home, and then in January 2016, I moved into my current position as Operations Manager here at Magic Life. I have a wealth of experience, not only that have I gained professionally but also on a more personal level. I enjoy making a difference to someone’s life, knowing that I have supported them to lead as independent a life as possible and to watch their confidence grow is extremely rewarding. At Magic Life we want to make a difference and we achieve what we set out to do. Magic Life is an expanding company and I am delighted to be part of it. Caroline Murphy

Marketing ManagerSee profile
Marketing ManagerI have been working with individuals with Dual-Diagnosis since 2010, I joined Magic Life as a Support-Worker, part-time in 2015. I was in the last year of my studies to become a registered member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy), My final essay was about the impact of Mental-Health in BME (Black Minority Ethnic) males and the issue of Dual-Diagnosis. I found that working face to face with these individuals gave me more insight than any research papers ever could, and ultimately I was able to get a hands-on approach to supporting individuals. I have now worked at Magic Life for nearly 4 years, and have moved from a Support-Worker to Area-Manager, through recognition of my hard work and understanding of the individuals we support. My life experiences have enabled me to have an understanding and empathetic relationship with individuals, there is nothing more rewarding than supporting someone to move towards a more independent way of living. MagicLife is a forward-thinking company that has great plans for the future; I am excited about how the company is expanding and look forward to being part of that growth. I am also somewhat Spurs mad!!! Raff Baccus

Learning Disability NurseSee profile
Learning Disability NurseI've been working with people with Learning disabilities for nearly 10 years now. I am a qualified Learning Disability Nurse and love my role in protecting and promoting the rights, health and well-being of people with Learning disabilities. I have always been a people person, and that’s why I will work tirelessly to ensure my practice is person-centred, safeguarding that their needs come first. My previous role as a community nurse involved me taking a holistic approach looking at someone's physical and mental health to support them to stay stable in the community, and to prevent placement breakdown. The other half of that role involved moving people back into the community after a long term stays in a hospital. It is these experiences combined with a wide knowledge of services and process that local authorities/ health teams work under, that gives me a strong foundation to support people in supported living and guide those who support them.
Every member of staff works towards enabling people to:
- Maximise the choice and control they have over their lives
- Maintain and increase their dignity and self-respect
- Play an active role within their communities
- Build friendships and networks within these communities
- Enjoy opportunities to learn, and grow to realise their potential
- Gain the safety and security they need to reach that future
Magic Life takes pride in changing people’s lives for the better.
