Tracey has worked at the Joseph Rowntree Foundation since December 2010. She is managing a new programme neighbourhood approaches to loneliness.
Tracey's background has focussed on community development within the voluntary and community sector for 18 years.
Eight of those years were voluntary, becoming a practitioner as well as an advocating the needs of communities, on local, regional, national and international forums. For a last 10 years she has worked with individuals and communities to develop, co-ordinate and manage new initiatives - working locally to meet the needs of communities and strategically in developing and evaluating services.
Tracey enjoys action research - working directly with individuals and groups to bring about change, develop opportunities and redress imbalances.
