Sue joined Traverse in January 2022 as a Senior Consultant in Health and Social Care. A commitment to tackling social justice has shaped her 25 year career, during which she has focused upon facilitating relationships and building trust between people, communities, and health, public and voluntary sector services to drive positive and meaningful change.
Well-versed in empowering diverse communities and people to tackle complex issues around inequality and prejudice, Sue has developed and delivered evidence-based strategies, programmes and projects across a range of organisations and partnerships.
"I really do believe that communities, places and services are improved when co-designed by everyone who lives, works or uses them. I feel really strongly that this must include those less likely to have a voice, and have been fortunate enough to have roles where I have been able to challenge at strategic levels where this is not the case.
"But I have also led pioneering projects that have listened, for example, to people with a learning disability experience of community eye care services, or people with personality disorders experience of their treatment and care. Having dual roles like this provides me with the privilege to stay connected to the reality people, communities and services face, as well as influence systemic and cultural change."
