“Hello, my name is Julie Tuffee and I manage the accounts for Friends of Stour Connect. I’ve only lived in Sturminster Newton for a short while, previously spending a number of years living in tropical North Queensland by the Great Barrier Reef and Melbourne Australia. I had various roles there working for councils, law firms and barristers’ clerks. I’ve also co-owned a hair salon with my husband who now works in care.
I am registered partially sighted. I believe it is so important for people with additional needs to feel confident and supported in the working environment so that they are not only able to find work but are able to remain in work.
I love going to the theatre, eating out, concerts and to the cinema, but I'm just as happy curled up with a good book and the cat at my feet”
