Carolyn Costello

As a patient and carer, I have witnessed how valuable the Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust is. I want to be part of an organisation that makes a real difference.

I have a strong local knowledge, having lived in the Chichester area for over 30 years. I am an active member of the local community, having worked with several voluntary groups, schools and charities in a voluntary capacity.

I am currently a Governor at a local primary school, ensuring there is robust challenge as well as supporting the school to continue to grow and develop. I was previously the Chair of Governors at the same school, working with the school to achieve an ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted rating.

I am outgoing, creative, responsible, dedicated, organised and a good communicator. I work hard to develop strong effective relationships with a range of different people. I have lots of enthusiasm.

I will work hard to represent the views of the community.
