Leonie Pollinger

Development Support Manager / Director


As a parent of a son with Down Syndrome I became involved with SGPC in 2010 as I was interested in making a difference for other families as well as working alongside professionals to help improve and shape services.

I am also a former paediatric nurse with 15 years’ experience so I have an insight into parent carers’ journeys and how difficult it can be from both a parents and professionals perspective.

In 2013 SGPC became a Community Interest Company and this is when I became heavily involved and became a director. My daily role is ‘development & support manager’ in which I oversee the whole team, and support them, as well as always looking at new ways to develop our organisation. Being part of SGPC gives me so much drive and passion to help families in South Glos.
