Organisation: PB Partners
I worked as a Neighbourhood Partnership Manager for Bradford Vision, the Local Strategic Partnership (LSP), for 4 years to March 2008. As well as facilitating partnership working between residents, elected members and service providers, I played a key role in the development of the LSP’s pioneering participatory grant-making programme, responsible for the allocation of over £1m of Neighbourhood Renewal funds.
Since then I regularly worked as a leading associate for the PB Unit, advising a wide range of local authorities on running PB programmes, as well as speaking at conferences and delivering PB training workshops for the Police, Housing Associations and Town and Parish councils. Since 2012 I have been continuing to provide similar support to the social enterprise consultancy PB Partners, which picked up the legacy of the PB Unit’s work.
My recent work has included providing support to Greater Manchester Police’s innovative District-wide PB programme and working closely with the Scottish Government to support the development of a National PB programme in Scotland.
