Jackie Lincoln

I have lived in the Knaresborough area with my family for over 30 years and have experienced a wide range of local health and related services during this time. For most of my career, I have worked in children’s services as an operational manager and a strategic leader (in Yorkshire and nationally).

I am passionate about working to address the inequalities which exist particularly for disadvantaged children and families, and I believe that access to the right services and help at the right time for children, young people and their families can help to promote long term health and wellbeing.

I have worked across the age range for children and families with extensive experience in the early years, early help and special needs and disabilities service areas. These roles have all involved close partnership working with a wide range of agencies, but particularly with health partners, one example being the delivery of the Healthy Child Programme.

I am used to analysing performance data and financial information and this has enabled me to contribute effectively to Board discussions at meetings of Children’s Trusts and Local Safeguarding Boards.

I have always valued the importance of consultation and co-design with service users, I see this as an essential pathway to planning and developing effective future services.

The role of Governor presents me with a great opportunity to continue to apply my acquired skills, experience and values to support the local community.
