Tonia has devoted much of her life to helping people. She has provided support and volunteered at many local charities including; The Cheshire Homes, Redcar Lifeboat, Citizens Advice Bureau, and most recently Teeside Socialist Clothing Bank.
Tonia’s passion for helping people lead her to become the founding member of TEES CIO. Her dedication for supporting people has guided her to help the homeless, the less fortunate and people with mental health and addiction problems. She has had personal experience of the latter and knows all to well the lack of support for those suffering with these issues.
