    Personal Statement

    Kerry began writing and producing digital media while working in community development in Toxteth, Liverpool, in the late 1990s as part of a broader programme of inner-city regeneration.

    In the mid-2000s she joined the award-winning International Centre for Digital Content at Liverpool John Moores University, teaching digital production, supporting digital business start-ups and engaging communities in pioneering digital inclusion work.

    Kerry is also an experienced small business/social enterprise development adviser with a particular focus on the creative and digital industries. She has helped to secure more than £16m new funding for local organisations since 1998, and as independent grants assessor between 2003 and 2014 she assessed funding applications worth more than £8m.
