For the past 12 years I have worked in the voluntary and community sector – and I love it! My current role as CEO of Wakefield and District Health and Community Support has enabled me to come in to contact with a range of amazing third sector community groups and charities, and support them to get grants from WDHCS to continue to deliver their work in some of the most deprived neighbourhoods and communities in the country. I am a trustee of NOVA, (the third sector infrastructure support organisation for Wakefield), and attend several strategic city wide boards. I have distributed more than £400,000 across 60+ organisations based in the Wakefield District since April – as a response to the Covid 19 pandemic. I am a prolific networker, and go out of my way to build good working relationships with colleagues in the statutory, private and health sectors.
