Experience

I have worked within both the statutory and voluntary sectors for the past 40 years mainly working with older people and vulnerable adults providing information, support and advocacy.

This was with a local charity where I worked for 4 years. I worked for the Alzheimer’s Society for 5 years, working as a Dementia Adviser and Befriending Officer.
