I moved from private sector into the third sector in 2002 and it was a completely different world. I was asked to bring some business principles into a large charity that was 100% grant dependent at a time when the European money was reducing and they had to be more sustainable. While working on sustainability I also managed an IT social inclusion project within the charity that provided an opportunity to work directly with disadvantaged people.

After 5 year I formed my own community interest company and continued ‘bridging the digital divide’ for another 6 years. During this time I completed a community heritage project and felt it was a time to move away from technology and move back into development.

In September 2014 I was fortunate enough to start work as a development officer for the CVS and I love it! Every day is something different, lots of new challenges and lots of new opportunities. I enjoy supporting community groups to help them become more sustainable I also enjoy development with the CVS itself. I project manage Gannow Big Local, East Lancashire CCG funding and Community Car Navigator project, and the Volunteer Centre.
