She also acts for individual clients on matters such as safeguarding, clergy discipline and data protection.
Louise regularly delivers seminars and training for ecclesiastical clients, including IME training for clergy, training for churchwardens, and workshops on GDPR/data protection in the ecclesiastical context. She is an ILM-accredited trainer.
Louise’s perfect day out would be to indulge in her unusual hobby of church bell ringing during the morning, before walking to a country pub where she would then quench her thirst with some Yorkshire-brewed real ale. Her greatest achievement outside of work has been leading a £63,000 project to restore the 18th-century bells of her local church to full working order with the help of a Heritage Lottery Fund grant. She is also a Kindle addict and loves to curl up with a good e-book.
