Julie James

Julie is a trustee and leads on race equality and inclusion.

Julie lives in the Calder Valley but is from Leeds originally, where she loved her varied work supporting adults with learning disabilities and challenging behaviours. Now working in logistics, she sees being a trustee as continued work for people to live inclusively, with equality and without prejudice and stigma. Understanding and helping people is valuable to Julie as a person. Seeing other people thrive in life is part of her happiness.

Other happiness for her is her family; she also loves to be creative, having hobbies restoring furniture and art projects. She loves going to the gym, walking her dogs and good company.
