Chair, Non-Executive Director
Nicola's professional background is in human resources and she has provided valuable expertise to guide the organisation’s people policies and organisational culture over recent years.
Having spent most of her working life in local government, she then worked on a freelance basis for a number of years, providing HR support and advice in the public and not for profit sectors.
She has been a non-executive member of Belong's Board since 2011, and is also a trustee for a charity providing services to older people. Having encountered some fairly depressing examples of care for older people, she has relished the opportunity to make a contribution to an organisation that sets high standards of person-centred care and which recognises the importance of a well-trained and motivated staff group.
