Wendy Harrison

What is your role within the community?

I am the co-ordinator of Hartlepool Deaf Centre. My role involves organising/facilitating social and health awareness events for Deaf people in the Hartlepool area, helping Deaf people to access NHS and other services and providing general support and signposting to other services.

Why did you want to become a Community Health Ambassador?

I wanted to become a CHA because members of Hartlepool's Deaf community often ask me to help them with problems accessing NHS services and I feel very strongly about speaking up on their behalf, so that issues can be identified and hopefully resolved.

What is your favourite quote/saying or motto in life?

Where there's a will there's a way!
