Sue Moffat is the founder director of New Vic Borderlines at the New Vic Theatre in Staffordshire, the theatre’s award-winning outreach department responding directly to the needs of the community locally and to the issues nationally and globally which have an impact on the lives of ordinary people. She focuses on working with individuals, groups and communities who exist on ‘the borders’, who are marginalised for various reasons and as such have reduced prospects to have an impact on the conditions which affect them, pursue opportunities for positive change and are deprived of the rights to celebrate as well as contribute to the wider community. The work she has developed has gained two National Global Ethics Awards, a British Crime Concern award for reducing offending behaviour, two Skills for Care awards for Inclusion and Innovation and a prestigious Clarion Award for Social Inclusion. Her documentary drama All Our Daughters? was launched nationally from Westminster and described as saving lives by the Chief Crown Prosecutor for the UK. She is a research fellow at Keele University.
