Lee Barnett


Lee joined Sandy Bear in 2023 and brings with him experience of working within statutory and voluntary sector organisations in areas including health and social care, Public Health and community and youth development. With a passion for supporting people, projects and organisations, Lee is looking forwards to embedding the organisation and its provision in areas where it can have the biggest impact.

Lee’s experience of bereavement and ability to empathise with our work stems from his own experience of loss as a child of several significant people in his life. He hopes that experience, coupled with knowledge of work with diverse groups of people over the years, offers a good foundation for working with Sandy Bear.

Outside of work, Lee is (very slowly) renovating a tired old cottage. He enjoys time in the garden and walking his trio of hounds around the peaks and troughs of Snowdonia with his long-suffering husband (usually finding a few local pubs with decent real ale along the way).
