As Careline Community Service Manager for the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, Judith Berry is playing a key role in shaping services for elderly and vulnerable people in the district.
Judith, whose background is in the voluntary sector, health and social care and the NHS, has overall management responsibility for the Careline Service and Lily. In her role, Judith is committed to developing the service and making a difference to more people. “I am looking to move assistive technology forward for customers in west and north Norfolk,” she explained.
For Judith, there are so many aspects of the job which she enjoys. “I love the people side of the job. I enjoy being out and about meeting all kinds of people. I also really like being able to innovate and develop our offer, listening to ideas and trying to implement them.”
“I also really enjoy working for the borough council. They are a very supportive organisation to work for and encourage development.”
Judith originally came to West Norfolk when her husband relocated for work. “We have stayed as it is a nice area to bring up a family.
Outside of work, Judith is very involved in running. “I am a Run Director for Parkrun, I am a qualified running coach for a community running club for beginners and I am also a member of Ryston Runners.”
“I enjoy living in King’s Lynn town with the countryside close by and it’s convenient to get to work. My work takes me across the county and it is nice to be able to see the area.”
