Jacqui Cook
Jacqui has been a carer for 27 years to her son who has a disability and a trustee for 9 years. She is – in her own words – “an ordinary person looking after an extraordinary young man” for whom involvement with Carers Lewisham gives balance to her life and allows her to give something back to the organisation which supported her through a bad time.

She specialised in working with organisations such as Cisco, BP, Stannah and Siemens to help them build the necessary infrastructure to achieve their strategic vision. She has extensive experience of project management, and most importantly of developing positive team and client relationships. She also delivered highly customised management development programmes to support organisational change. In addition Rosemary has worked as a school governor in Lewisham, both at primary and secondary level, and as the treasurer for her local arts festival in Lewisham. In her spare time she sings with Lewisham Choral Society and enjoys long distance walking.
