Annie Darby OBE QN

CCA-NE-Annie Darby OBE QN

North East

Annie has been nominated for her work to improve the health and wellbeing of those groups considered marginalised, drug users, offenders, sex workers and those with complex physical and mental health needs. She realised that traditional services do not meet the needs of these individuals and families, so has spent a lot of time creating services that are inclusive, combined with outreach work to enable vulnerable individuals and families engage with the right providers.

Nominated by: Melanie Onn MP
