Project Lead - Lisa Bosomworth

Lisa has worked in many community development settings, within the public and voluntary sector, for nearly 30 years, primarily listening and responding to local needs.

She joined Middlesbrough Voluntary Development Agency in August 2012 to oversee our work around CANparent – the national parenting class trials, and to support the initial development of Talent Match Middlesbrough. As Community Engagement Team Leader, Lisa was responsible for their work to support local people to have a voice and influence in the design, delivery and evaluation of policy initiatives and service development.

This passion continues in her new role as the Healthwatch Development and Delivery Manager, covering Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland, ensuring people’s voice influences all aspects of health and social care services for the better.
