Pip is the Director of Volition, a part of Forum Central in partnership with Leeds Older People’s Forum. She leads on Communities of Interest, Mental Health, Disabilities, Local Care Partnerships and the Third Sector Covid-19 Outbreak Plan with Public Health. She is the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Third Sector place lead for Leeds, and also represents the Voluntary Community Sector on the Primary and Community Services Programme and the Improving Population Health Boards.
