OneLife Suffolk Staff Helen-Rose - Children's Service Lead


Children's Service Lead

Welcome to our website, I hope you have found the information provided helpful and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly team to help you.

Since graduating from University of Suffolk with a BSc in Sports and Exercise Science in 2011, I have worked for the Children’s and Young People’s Healthy Lifestyle Services. I have learnt a lot throughout my roles and have been fortunate enough to work with many wonderful children, young people and families as well as many passionate health professionals, teaching staff and external organisations.

I believe that gaining knowledge and the tools needed to make healthy choices throughout life should be available to all and that’s why I’m passionate about what we do here at OneLife Suffolk.

OneLife Suffolk Staff Sarah - Programme Co-ordinator (North West)


Programme Co-ordinator (North West)

I joined OneLife Suffolk because I have a passion for helping people be more active – I am a running and athletics coach and I particularly enjoy working with beginners and children. What I didn’t realise is how much I would learn, and be able to change in my own family, from working at OneLife.

Every session is about families having fun together, so it makes it a great place to work. When I am not working, I love to cycle, run or curl up with a book.
