Chris joined out Trustees in 2021 bringing clinical and managerial skills and experience from 25 years working with local charities and mental health services. 

 As a mental health nurse Chris has worked on inpatient wards, in acute hospitals, the drug and alcohol team, early interventions, older peoples and currently with the adult community team.

Chris has a passion for ensuring the service user is placed front and centre of their care and that families and significant others are also able to access help and support. Whilst working with the Older Peoples service Chris helped to establish the service user and carer involvement group which had direct input into the design and provision of services.

Away from work Chris is likely to be seen riding his bike around the Dales or reading the paper in his local coffee shop.
