assistant director - infrastructure
My role it to lead the charity’s work supporting the development of an infrastructure capable of meeting the needs of active people and enabling the inactive to participate in sport and physical activity. Working in collaboration with partners our aim is to create a local workforce with the skills and competencies to meet the needs of the sector and ensure we have quality places to play sport and be physically active.
I have been with Tyne & Wear Sport since 2004 and in that time seen many changes and considerable growth of the charity. Previous to this I worked within local government in sports development roles for both Sunderland and Newcastle City Council.
I have always had a keen interest in sport, both participating and watching, I was a national swimmer for over ten years, as well as representing my school and county in several sports. These days, I am secretary of 2 different sports clubs and enjoy fly fishing for trout and salmon.
