Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member Neighbourhood Working - Councillor Sarah Allen


Sarah was first elected as a Councillor for the Wingfield Ward in 2016. In 2018 she took up Cabinet responsibility for Cleaner, Greener Communities and has now been appointed as Deputy Leader with Cabinet responsibility for Neighbourhood Working.


She has over thirty years’ experience of local government working in Waste, Social Inclusion and Neighbourhood and Community Regeneration. She has worked with many community organisations, been a Board Member for many of them and helped them access funding from local, national, and European funding streams. She is committed to partnership working and the role of Councillors as community champions. She is looking forward to her new Member Development and Support role and the opportunity to become more involved in Democratic Services.


Areas of responsibility include:

·       Supporting the Leader in day to day activity

·       Neighbourhood Working and Thriving Neighbourhoods Strategy

·       Engagement/consultation relating to Towns and Villages Fund 

·       Parish Liaison

·       Community Cohesion

·       Democratic Services

·       Member Development 


Working with you to help build communities that we can all take pride in has always been a priority for the Council.


We value the contributions that people make within their local area, through volunteering and getting involved in decision making, to really make a difference for everyone who lives there. By building on the work we've already done together we can continue to find new ways to meet the challenges facing Rotherham.
