I have been involved in the management and leadership of services for adults and young people for over 25 years – the last 20 of those within the charitable sector.

I am passionate about the tangible impacts Charities have in making a real and lasting difference to people’s lives and has been lucky enough to witness this in abundance over the years. These positive outcomes are what motivate and drive me to continue making a difference.

I have held various non-executive positions, which in the past have included the roles within the Housing sector and as a Governor for Lancashire Care Foundation Trust. I am currently a member of the BBC Children in Need Regional advisory committee covering the North of England, a non-executive director at a learning disability charity called One Fylde and a Board member of the Local Care Organisation in Rochdale (One Rochdale Health and Care).
