I am the Museums Development Officer for Gloucestershire. My main objective is to support museums that are Accredited or Working Towards Accreditation status in their development around three main themes: Organisational Health, Collections and User Services.
I run the Gloucestershire Museums Group and also support the museums in partnership working, funding applications and project design and delivery. I am funded externally through the ACE's Museums Development Fund but I am employed by Gloucestershire County Council. I am also a member of the board of trustees of the South Western Federation of Museums and Art Galleries, the SW representative of the National Museum Development Network and the Museum Development Officer representative on the South West Museum Development Partnership board so I work both locally, regionally and nationally.
