“My name is Rosie Court. I’m from Morpeth but living in Heaton, Newcastle.
Prior to working for Citizens Advice Northumberland, I spent my days volunteering for Crisis, Shelter and West End Women and Girls and spent my nights working in my local Thai Restaurant. I have a degree in Criminology and Sociology, which solidified my desire to work in the charity sector – with a particular interest in homelessness, offender rehabilitation and Violence Against Women and Girls.
In my free time I like to get outside, into the Northumbrian countryside for a big ol’ walk – if a dog is present (in any situation) then that is a bonus! I love to catch up with my friends with good food and drinks – alcoholic or otherwise – socially-distanced of course! Since the pandemic, I have been told that I’m not a bad cook, and have taken up running and yoga which I’m enjoying so far. In the evenings, you’ll most likely find me knee-deep in a true crime documentary and/or crime thriller.
I am SUPER happy and excited to be working for the Bridge Team. I have really enjoyed working on Adviceline, but I have always been keen to do more casework, so I’m looking forward to pushing myself in a new role. Can’t wait to get started!”
