Pam Tomkins

Innovation & Development Manager

Pam has worked in the community sector, predominantly in disability support or mental health for the last 20 years and was formerly the Manager of Sherwood Centre Charitable Trust up to the merger with CCT in May 2014.  She is particularly interested in ways in which communities come together and self-organise to create solutions at a local level and how we can be more proactive in supporting people with intellectual disabilities to lead social change.  Pam firmly believes that communities are about everyone and that communities are a better place when all people are included. 

Pam lives in Central Dunedin with her husband Patric and in her spare time is likely to be found foraging in second hand shops or curled up with her Devon Rex cats watching a movie.
