Previous Experience

Rachael has worked within the Voluntary Sector in Sheffield for most of her career delivering Public Health projects in deprived communities to help improve the lives of others. She has also delivered weight management programmes across the City for children & families, young people and adults. 

More recently Rachael worked at South Yorkshire Housing Association leading on service improvement and customer voice across their health, care and support services. In addition to this she has also spent time working on a project alongside Health & Social Care Commissioners across the Sheffield City Region to imbed coproduction into the design, delivery and evaluation of services. 

Working collaboratively has always been at the core of her work and ensuring services and provisions are designed with the people who will be accessing them, so they are fit for purpose particularly for those hardest to reach. Rachael has built knowledge and skills in asset-based approaches, inclusion and diversity and behavior change. She is also very familiar with Sheffield and already has great links in the City. 

Rachael is passionate about giving everyone the same opportunity to lead a healthy lifestyle and be able to access physical activity opportunities and is proud to be part of making this happen in Sheffield.

Keeping Active

Rachael loves to run outdoors and feels lucky to live in Sheffield where there are plenty of scenic routes and hills to keep her heart rate up – she enjoys a challenge! She also enjoys going to the local gym and keeping active with her two young children.
