Chris Pretty

Project Co-ordinator

I am fortunate enough to have lived in Sunderland all of my life.  I’m a proud “Mackem” who passionately believes that Sunderland is a great place to live, work and relax in.  The bulk of my working life so far has been in the Public Sector, but on taking early retirement a few years ago I moved into the voluntary sector.  In a previous role I had quite a lot of contact with parents of disabled children so was aware of some of the challenges facing parents, therefore when the opportunity arose to work at Grace House on a project to support parents and carers of children with complex disabilities it was something I felt very fortunate to be offered.


Away from work I am, of course, a Sunderland season ticket holder so know all about highs and lows!  Our family are keen walkers with a particular fondness for the Lake District.  I also enjoy eating out, going to the cinema, watching TV drama’s and reading.
