Much of my working life has been committed to furthering the wellbeing of children and young people, an issue close to my heart.

I have a strong commitment to and understanding of equalities, with the belief that the greatest impact is achieved when communities are empowered to affect change and co-produce services. I have good business acumen, having developed self-sustaining services within disadvantaged and excluded communities.
