From director to keyworker to trustee to volunteer, our team is made up of an agile group of like minded people brought together by a shared goal.
My role involves figuring out ways to get the public engaged and invested in our projects, so that all our great work is supported. Whether that’s inspiring people to fundraise for us, creating an important connection with a business or getting people to like us on social media.
I have overall responsibility for the strategic and operational management of the charity. I enjoy bolstering our relationships with businesses and other partners to help ensure our work has a meaningful impact for those in need in our city. You'll usually find me accompanied by my dog, Lena.
My principal role is to oversee the operational elements of the charity and work alongside the Project Leads on a day to day basis to help ensure that we deliver quality services. I also support our Director Ben around our more strategic aims, working to improve our governance and promote the charity city-wide.
I work with young people aged 16-25 who are at risk of Homelessness and/or multi disadvantage. I work in a relational way and offer support on a emotional and practical level to help build self esteem, confidence and resilience. Young people`s emotional wellbeing is at the forefront of everything I do and seeing young people feel in control and confident about their future is what drives my passion to work as a youth practitioner.
I help manage the 365 night shelter, carrying out all the daily tasks involved to ensure the amazing volunteers have everything they need to open the doors every night of the year.
I work with young people aged 16 to 25 who are experiencing homelessness and/or multi-disadvantage. Part of my role involves arranging temporary placements for young people in the homes of our volunteer hosts whilst also helping them to secure longer-term accommodation. I also work on a 1:1 basis with young people offering them emotional and practical support and advocacy. I work in a relational way which means that young people are at the fore front of everything I do.
I am responsible for the organisation and coordination of the Caring at Christmas project. This involves recruiting and coordinating volunteers, managing relationships with partners, and arranging the logistics of the project. There’s a lot to the project so there are never two days the same!
