I have been involved in the voluntary sector for eight years. My journey began in 2010 when I joined Hull CVS to support vulnerable adults as a Volunteer Support Mentor. In 2014 I began working for the Citizens Advice Witness Service where I managed a team of volunteers at the courts in Beverley, Bridlington and Hull to support witnesses and victims of crime.
In 2018 I joined KCOM as a Customer Service Advisor and took my experiences from the voluntary sector with me. During my time at KCOM received praise for my level of customer service as I always wanted to achieve the best outcome possible for the customer.
I joined Healthwatch in 2020 as I feel the input from Healthwatch into local Health and Social Care services will make a fundamental difference and I want to support its mission (and have some of Andrew’s biscuits). I will be using all my experience and skills to ensure that the volunteers have a unique and rewarding experience while delivering an invaluable service to the community.
