Paula Bryan

Steering Group Member Inspire

Paula is passionate about wellbeing, community (local and global) and social justice. With over 30 years’ experience of delivering and managing services years Paula’s commitment and drive to improve wellbeing in our community grew from her early life as a young carer supporting her mother who was diagnosed with schizophrenia and depression. Her lived experience gave her an insight into how health inequalities can impact individuals, families and communities and the desire to create change.

Specialising in the wellbeing of unpaid carers Paula is committed to creating an ecosystem where Black carers can thrive and lead fulfilling lives of their own alongside and beyond their caring role. Alongside her role at Inspire, Paula is the Founder and CEO of Carers4Carers, an award-winning social enterprise, Director of Men’s Walk n Talk supporting men’s health, Executive Board Member for the Open Minds Alliance supporting the mental health of African and Caribbean heritage communities and a Wellbeing Coach.
