Additional Information

I have been a Labour Councillor in Gateshead since 2009 and I have always been an active member of the Labour Party, holding Officer positions at Branch and Constituency level. 


I currently Chair the Gateshead Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) plus I am a member of Planning and Development Committee; a member of the Families Overview and Scrutiny Committee; and a member of Special Appointments Committee.


As Chair of the HWB I also sit on a range of other Council strategic groups and Boards including co-Chairing the Strategic Childrens Partnership Board. I am a Council representative to the North East Regional Employers Organisation (NEREO). 


In addition, I Chair the NHS sub Regional Integrated Care Partnership (North) and act as Gateshead’s representative to the Regional NHS Integrated Care Partnership which cover the whole of the North East and North Cumbria. 


I also represent the Council on the management committees of three community centres in Rowlands Gill, Chopwell and Blackhall Mill, plus I am a local authority Governor at Chopwell Primary School. 


As a Councillor I help deal with many personal and local issues and problems on behalf of local residents, and I try to support all the Church and community voluntary organisations across the ward. 


Please get in touch if you think I can help in any way.
