Christine Sharma

Road Safety Manager - Dorset & Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service

Christine Sharma is the Road Safety Manager for Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service (DWFRS), overseeing road safety education since August 2019. In collaboration with Swindon & Wiltshire Road Safety Partnership and Dorset Road Safe, DWFRS lead on educating young drivers to understand the potential consequences of poor decisions and risky behaviour, empowering students with strategies and tools to make good choices and enjoy the freedom driving affords. A graduate in Law, Christine has specialised in working with NEET and vulnerable 12-24 year olds for 12 years within the public sector, adopting various education approaches and behaviour change models. Based in Trowbridge, with an HGV licence, Christine wonders whether she is the only road safety professional in the UK without her own transport but is happy to play her part towards achieving a greener, more sustainable future.
