OPAL North East

Ingrid Wilkinson


With a background in holistic health, play, early years, counselling and lecturing it is only natural Ingrid’s career path led from being Senior Development Officer at Play England where her remit was play and health in schools across the UK to becoming an OPAL Mentor.

Over the past few years, Ingrid has worked with almost 100 schools across the North East of England. As a Senior Mentor, she tutors and supports new OPAL mentors and she is also the area developer for Scotland, working in partnership with Play Scotland.

A mam of 3 wild and crazy kids who strive for play adventures on a daily basis, Ingrid is also a Registered Operational Play Inspector and volunteers as a Trust Member for Shiremoor Adventure Playground in North Tyneside. Outside of work you might find Ingrid enjoying a regular dip in the north sea or walking her gorgeous cockerpoo Milo
