BPRCVS Trustee Lian Pate

BPRCVS Trustee

I joined the Board of BPRCVS Trustees in 2016 as an appointed representative of Burnley Borough Council. I currently sit as a Trustee representing Big Light On CIC.

I have worked across all sectors in my career, but I have worked in the voluntary sector in some form since I was 16 and believe it has a vital role to play in empowering people to achieve their potential and feel valued in society.

My academic background is in information systems, specialising in the management of change and information flow. I have held several teaching and lecturing positions over the years including time at the University of Salford’s Information Systems Institute.

I am formerly an Executive member for Community and Environmental Services at Burnley Council and a Councillor for the Brunshaw ward.
