Susan Garrett

Health and Wellbeing Coordinator

Susan joined DCA in June 2021 as our Health & Wellbeing Co-ordinator. This is a new role created to support Durham Community Action as it engages with the health and wellbeing infrastructure through partnership working in County Durham. Part of Susan’s role will be to build on the relationships between voluntary sector led social activity and those who are connecting people to community-based support.

Susan has worked in the voluntary sector for over 15 years, originally with Durham and Chester-le-Street Carers Support then with Durham County Carers Support as their Learning Disability and Autism Development Worker. Representing Carers at local, regional and at national level. Before this Susan worked as Patient/Carer Liaison and Service Officer within a GP Surgery.

From her many years of experience in various volunteering roles, Susan recognises the importance of community engagement and partnership working.

Away from work, Susan enjoys time spent with friends and family and Bertie her Basset hound.
