Peer Worker

I got involved with Take-Off through the Canterbury & Coastal Clinical Commissioning Group in August 2015. I’ve been leading partnership project work with AgeUK Canterbury for creatives in ‘arts for dementia and arts for community mental health wellbeing’. Challenging ourselves as communities to be more ‘mental health alert’, and to be more ‘dementia friendly’ is what drives and inspires me; how we can better support each other, particularly through ‘doing’ things, especially creative things.


People say I come over as a positive and chatty person (yes I can ‘talk for England’) but I do struggle with ‘the winter blues’. I try to keep upbeat in helping my mum to live as independently as possible with the day-to-day challenges that Alzheimer’s brings.
