I currently lead Inclusion Cornwall which also incorporates the Inclusion Cornwall Hub (formerly the Cornwall Works Hub).  We take on all inclusion issues that come our way and are not afraid to challenge or congratulate.

Before moving back to Cornwall I spent ten years working in the Bristol area. During this time I secured regeneration money for Weston-super-mare, a first for the area which had previously been left behind, and also worked to abolish the County of Avon, paving the way for the new Unitary Authority of North Somerset.  I am a qualified Town and Country Planner and moved back to Cornwall to run my own planning business focusing on regeneration and new settlements.

In 2001, I became the first Social Inclusion Officer in England to be co-funded by a district council (Penwith) and the Employment Service.  This allowed me to bring forward such outstanding work as Trelya (Penzance), Sure Starts, Healthy Boxes and many more.  I was able to link health with work for the first time and started to think about heating and homes for health. In 2003 I took the role of Inclusion Officer Countywide and developed the cross-sector partnership of Inclusion Cornwall.

I am driven by fairness for all.

I have been employed by Careers South West as a Careers Adviser for 7 years. I am a qualified NVQ level 6 Careers Adviser which means I have been able to register as a member of the Careers Development Institute.  This qualification gives me great insight into the tools available to support people making career choices, as well as giving me access to recent research, news, training, webinars on careers development and an ongoing awareness of LMI.  Careers South West provides an impartial, all age careers information, advice and guidance service to help engage all customers in learning and work, raising aspirations, improving life chances and personal outcomes.

I am currently seconded to Inclusion Cornwall’s Hub to provide careers and skills support to customers who access the hub and the projects that run through the Hub. My role involves working with individuals to achieve their work goals, linking into the goals of the hub to reduce worklessness within Cornwall.   The support can involve looking at career changes due to ill-health, researching training and funding available for individuals, supporting with CVs, being aware of the local job market, and working closely with job centres and supporting organisations.

As the Inclusion Cornwall Hub Manager, I offer advice and guidance to individuals in crisis and the professionals who support them. I have been working in this sector for over 15 years from various angles with my specialty being supporting people with numerous and complex barriers. I am trained in Psychotherapy, Advice and Guidance, NLP, Hypnotherapy and Health and Community Studies.

My work in the field of supporting some of the most vulnerable into employment has been published twice in a national life coaching magazine, Rapport, and cited in a book as best practice in the field of business NLP. I am also very proud of the work I did with The New Connection several years ago, setting up activities and training in the day centre – all with no budget. My favourite activity was taking a group of people from the day centre to Crenver Woods each week to help the Sustainable Trust to manage the woodland. We would end the day with a big bonfire on which we would cook fish that the group had caught with fishing tackle the local community had donated.

My role within the Inclusion Cornwall Hub brings together all of my previous experiences and training, enabling me to respond effectively with an understanding of what holds people back and how to help them progress. I lead the Inclusion Cornwall Hub Conversations, multi agency training and general enquiries.  In addition to supporting individuals I also feel passionately about the need to support the professionals around them and I coordinate a virtual resource sharing network  of over 350 frontline workers which links to the multi-agency training.

Working as the Inclusion Officer I support our large network answering queries for partners and individuals,  working alongside the Inclusion and Inclusion Cornwall Hub Managers.  I lead the Winter Wellness Projects each year working with Public Health with the aim of removing fuel poverty in Cornwall.  I also lead the Hospital Homeless Discharge for Inclusion Cornwall working with the hospitals across Cornwall. You will also find me in the Inclusion Cornwall Hub carrying out Conversations, managing Helston and Lizard Works and Scilly Works.  I see my role as linking people and projects together.

I also manage all of Inclusion Cornwall’s finances and keep the Inclusion Cornwall Hub ready for any activity or project.
