Strutt, Isabel

Office worker and Businesswoman


Isabel Strutt is a local community activist whose campaign for election to parliament probably assisted her election as a local councillor. As a Christian Democrat Party candidate she was unsuccessful in obtaining the New South Wales Legislative Assembly seat of the Northern Tablelands in 2003, but the following year was elected to the Uralla Shire Council.


Isabel Strutt was educated in Queensland and has lived in both Queensland and NSW. She has worked in a variety of jobs, including bank and office work, retail business, small business owner, and as a private secretary to the Deputy Premier of Queensland. She has also served as a Salvation Army Officer, with her husband, for a number of years.

From her retirement in June 2000, she has been involved in community volunteer work.
In 2005, the Hope for the Children Foundation, Inc. Armidale Family Network, of which she was President, received a Commonwealth government grant of $120,000 under the Stronger Families and Communities Strategy.
