As Director for People, Partnerships and Memberships, Lee works on behalf of both internal staff and our external workforce, RLSS UK volunteers, members and partners.

Lee has a strong background in community development initiatives and volunteering work, with a real passion for empowering people to make positive change in their communities.

In recognising the Society has a wealth of people with valuable skills, Lee works to ensure an honest and open culture, encouraging personal development for the benefit of everyone.

Through adequate and timely support for people who represent the organisation and then equipping them with the right tools, the Society is proactive in promoting RLSS UK messages, training and education nationwide.

Our network of branches across the UK plays a crucial part in this education and training work, with Lee overseeing our response to their needs, as well as those of our volunteers and members.

Lee looks after the development of new and existing, lifesaving pathways, awards and accessibility to membership and believes in a proactive stance: internal and externally-based personnel are at the forefront of leading the organisation’s drowning prevention work and should be supported in maintaining and building on this momentum.

RLSS UK has an ambition to grow its membership and support base to increase the opportunity to educate and train, as well as generating wider exposure of the positive work of RLSS UK. Growth in this area is central to Lee’s future direction.
