Leigh Connell


Leigh brings over 25 years’ experience of working in the Community Sector with diverse communities such as people with disabilities, those experiencing homelessness, those living with mental illness and at risk of displacement due to impact of climate change. 

Leigh’s work has afforded her many opportunities to develop and utilize her skills with leading organisations at a community level, as part of management teams and as a representative on peak bodies. 

Leigh holds a passion that each person and their families feel empowered and supported to engage in their own end of life journey via awareness, education and suitable choices. She spends time volunteering with Hospice Volunteers both at the Whittle Ward and in the community, and can often be found up to her elbows in the garden.
