Paula joined RAD in October 2023 working mainly from the office in Matlock. As Engagement and Events Coordinator she will also be out and about at events throughout the county.  

Prior to joining the team she worked for Derbyshire Constabulary and the Police and Crime Commissioners office for a number of years in a variety of roles in the Criminal Justice Department and out and about in the local communities in consultation and engagement roles.  As part of the Police & Crime Commissioners team, she worked alongside RAD to help set up the Willow Project.

Paula has a diverse knowledge and community engagement background and says “Its great to be working with RAD and helping to raise awareness of our projects in rural Derbyshire”.

She lives in the Amber Valley area with her family and enjoys spending time outdoors in the garden, walking and relaxing visiting interesting places of interest in the UK.  In the past she has enjoyed supporting her son with his cricket achievements at County level and travelling all over the UK to matches.  Not forgetting preparing endless cricket teas!  She has also been a trustee for a local charity supporting victims of domestic abuse.
