I am an experienced youth and community development worker by trade and have 18 years experience of working with children and young people, designing, delivering and managing services and supporting charities, voluntary and community organisations to grow their sustainability and collaborate to improve outcomes for children and young people.

I am currently also a board member of a large Leisure Trust. I hope to bring all of this experience to support the further development of POINT.

I joined the POINT Board because I wanted to volunteer to support the governance of the organisation. POINT has come so far in such a relatively short time and this is credit to a small group of passionate people. I joined the board to support and help share the load. I am passionate about children, young people and equality. I believe that every child should be given every opportunity to have the best start in life. Some children need more support than others and their families play a key role in this, I believe that by working together families can support each other to give their children the best start
