Helen McAdam- Voluntary Sector Development Worker


Helen joined Sunderland Voluntary Sector Alliance in October 2023 as Voluntary Sector Development Worker.  Helen joins us from Newcastle Carers where she worked on a social action research project with the aim of increasing capacity to respond to the current and disproportionate challenges faced by carers from asylum seeker and refugee communities. 

Helen has over 20 years' experience working in the public and voluntary sector.  Helen is a strong advocate for marginalised and underrepresented groups and has taken a project management role to identify gaps in services and develop partnership working. Helen developed and manged a supported housing project which enabled her to gain skills in overseeing contracts and service level agreements.    

As a local resident Helen is passionate about supporting local communities to reach their potential.
