Lee Morrisey

Bereavement Practitioner

Lee joined the Sandy Bear team in August 2023, having volunteered for the charity for the past four years. She has worked with children and young people of all ages in various roles for nearly thirty years, having been a childminder and LSA before beginning a career teaching English at secondary level, in 2005.

Lee’s connection with Sandy Bear began when her own family received invaluable support from the service following the death of her niece. As a teacher she also saw the positive impact Sandy Bear’s involvement had on grieving pupils. Lee feels privileged to be able to work with and support bereaved children, young people and their families.

Originally from Manchester, Lee has lived in Pembrokeshire since 1977. She and her husband have three daughters and a grandson. Alongside time spent with her family she enjoys walking, reading, watching cricket and singing in a community choir.
