Hiya, I’m Tracey and I help groups to apply for funding.  My primary role is administering the Clinical Commissioning Group – Prescription for Wellbeing Fund.  My other job is as Outreach Worker for Gannow Big Local.  Gannow Big Local is a community group that was awarded £1 million from the National Lottery to make improvements to the Gannow Big Local area.  I build and maintain relationships with many and varied organisations, groups and services. Helping groups make connections that make a real and lasting difference to their community.  

I have had a very varied working life from being a Saturday girl in my auntie’s hairdressers at 12 years old to a Youth Opportunities Scheme placement with Burnley and Pendle Racial Equality Council, where I worked for 3 years.  All of the positions I held have one thing in common… people.  I worked at the Burnley Express for 16 years as a Pre-Press Operative – even this had elements of people.  My job was to put together all the Classified Advertising pages, including the ‘hatch, match and despatch’ pages otherwise known as Birth, Marriages and Deaths.  On being made redundant from a job I loved, I decided to go for something I had a real interest in.  I got the job at Burnley Council as Clerical Assistant in the Equality and Access Team because of my general, all-encompassing attitude.  People are people.

After a varied and interesting 10 years at Burnley Council working in the Community Engagement Team in various roles including counsellor for a staff support group, I was made redundant (again!) and applied for this position, here at CVS.  I had worked with various team members at CVS whilst at Burnley Council so had an idea of what would be expected.  I love the role I have within CVS, helping people to help themselves and others.

In my ‘spare(!)’ time, my partner and I enjoy going to music gigs in Manchester, seeing such varied acts as Julian Cope, Sleaford Mods and Hawkwind, to name but a few!  I also adore gardening and find my time in my garden relaxing and precious.  I believe making time for ourselves is important and advocate ‘me’ time to everyone!
