  • My role as a community organiser is to work at grass roots community engagement. To achieve this I complete a process of door-knocking and listening. Once I've identified loves or concerns I motivate and support local people to take action on what's most important to them and creating their visions within their community, carefully implementing systems of accountability and sustainability in the process.
  • For the Trust, Tracy is used to the structures and processes of large organisations and will support the development of trust committee and their effectiveness. Tracy is used to bringing new teams together in her professional role and this is something the Trust will benefit from in its early development.
