I joined Healthwatch as an Ambassador in November 2014, and work mainly in South Cumbria. After being a full time parent, I worked as a Social Worker until I retired in 2012.
I feel that being a volunteer ambassador is very rewarding, and means that I am in contact with people from all walks of life. As a volunteer I can give as much or as little time to the health and well-being of the people of Cumbria, as fits in with other important aspects of my life, such as my children and grandchildren. I am disabled and have an interest in all aspects of diversity issues.
