I have worked for 35+ years in the charity sector. My background is in information services, and over the years I moved into information quality and to more general service leadership.
Prior to joining Carer Support Wiltshire/Carer Support Dorset, I was Chief Executive at Age Concern Hampshire, a large charity with 160 paid staff and 350 volunteers, running 11 day care centres and a volunteer-led information service. Before that, I was Director of Life After Stroke Services – South of England with Stroke Association for eight years. Other employers include Age Concern England, National Council for Voluntary Organisations and Citizens Advice where I was Executive Director of Advice.
