BOARD MEMBER

"I have recently joined the Board and have a working background in the voluntary and statutory sectors in Sheffield.  During my working life I set up Sheffield Dementia Alliance and SE Sheffield Community Dementia Advice Service.  Predominantly, my work has been around older adults.  Working in partnership and collaboration with all stakeholders has been my approach to community development.

Since leaving paid employment my interest in art and creative writing has led me to be involved with Ignite Imaginations – an organisation whose values match my own.  I look forward to getting involved."
