Hello, I am the Challenge through Sport Initiative (CSI) Lead and Operations Manager. I have been with Active Lancashire since April 2014. The CSI Project started as a 6 month pilot however due to its overwhelming success Active Lancashire were able to apply to the Get Healthy, Get Active Fund through Sport England. In June 2016 we were awarded £5000 000 to fund our project for 3 years. I now have a team of 10 Support Workers who cover Burnley, Hyndburn, Blackburn, Central, Blackpool, Lancaster & Morecambe and Fleetwood.
The Project is designed to support those on the road to recovery from substance misuse by helping them to adopt a more active and healthier lifestyles. It supports the five ways to well-being. The Project has seen some incredible outcomes and everyone has said how it has developed their confidence and self esteem. I support the team with the help of two Project Assistants.
I am able to draw on my previous experience of having worked as a Police Officer, Netball Development Officer for England Netball (temporary post) , Healh & Wellbeing Officer, Netball and Trampoline Coach, Teacher and Tutor.
I was a mature student and graduated from Uclan in 2008 with a Ba Hons in History and English. I went on to complete my PGCE and have worked in local colleges as a Netball Academy Coach, tutor for GSCE English and Public Services.
My sport speciality is netball. I am Head Coach at Ribble Valley Netball Club and involved with Lancs County Netball. I have lots of varied sporting qualifications which are regularly put to use!
My other hobbies include reading, walking, entertaining and spending time with my family.
