I am an Ilkeston resident and have two small children. I have been a member of the Credit Union since it first opened. I have worked within Local Government for the past 18 years and for more than 13 years have worked with people who are at risk of being homeless.
My experience has shown me how important it is to have a financial safety net during difficult times and of the negative impact on families, in particular mental health, of debt. As a result I am very passionate about ensuring that all people have access to savings and affordable credit when needed.
