Today, Susan Chrisp from AgeUK Northumberland introduces herself:
I’ve recently joined Age UK Northumberland as the Case Support Officer working on the Cancer, Older People and Advocacy Project. I was first interested in the role because my own family have been affected by cancer and I understand how important it is for people who have cancer and their families to be supported during this difficult time.
I was really pleased when I was offered the job at Age UK Northumberland and I currently work one day per week at Age UK and my role involves supporting the Project Manager and Project Team to deliver the Project.
My background is in teaching, mainly working with people who are least engaged in education and I also work on a Project which helps older people combat loneliness and social isolation. By working on the Cancer and Older Peoples’ Advocacy Project I can use my background and knowledge to contribute positively in Northumberland.
