I have worked for charities for over 20 years, after completing my studies in Theology. Most of my work has been with people who are homeless and I have managed a number of hostels. I joined The Barons Court Project in 2014 and really enjoy my work leading the community here, it's a great privilege. In my spare time I enjoy travelling, meeting up with friends, occasionally cooking and love an evening out with Karaoke.
I have worked in the mental health and homelessness sector for over 10 years and I bring a wealth of experience to my role. I enjoy advising and mentoring people to pass on my experience. I co-ordinate the volunteers at the project who bring their own passion, skills and talents to the community. My main passion is listening to and playing music and have greatly enjoyed discussing this with the service users who are into music and playing it themselves.
Having recently moved to London from Jersey I look forward to meeting and working with service users in both one to one sessions and group work. After graduating with a degree in Psychology over the years i have worked within the mental health and more recently homelessness sector. I am very pleased to now be working at BCP who do fantastic work supporting service users. In my free time I enjoy spending time with friends and family, films and visiting new places.
I have been involved with Barons Court project for two years and am delighted to be appointed as a project worker in the interim of 2018. I enjoy supporting people at the project and being able to engage with people otherwise neglected by society. I enjoy leading activities, groups and doing one-to-one support work with service users as well speaking with volunteers and people from external institutions about the work we do at the project and why it matters. In my free time I enjoy travelling, going out with friends and spending time outdoors.
Before I joined Barons Court Project in March 2017, I have over 10 years' experience in various business sectors including
education, fashion, retail, wholesale and hospitality industries, but never in a non-profit organisation.
It is a fantastic opportunity for me to work at BCP. This is because it provides me not only to gain valuable new work experience but also to make an invaluable contribution to help people in need. Here I meet with a great team of individuals who are working as a team to provide a great support to our service users. I am very grateful to be part of this. I really enjoy the friendly and supportive working environment here.
When I am not working, I spend time with my family, hanging out with friends and I travel whenever I get the chance.
Gaining an MSc in Charity Fundraising and Marketing at London Southbank University facilitated my
desire to concentrate in charity work. After many years working at the BBC in live broadcasting,
I wanted to dedicate my time to my charitable concerns.
I have been a community campaign leader, School Governor, and volunteer for Refugee Action, Age Concern, Wildlife Trust, Keep Britain Tidy and The Act for Change Project.
I am delighted to have joined the committed team at Baron's Court Project. There is a special atmosphere here where needs are met with dignity, and acceptance that is warm and welcoming.
I enjoy multicultural arts, theatre, films, dance and music. An enthusiastic photographer, I also write stories for children.
In my day job, I'm General Counsel & Company Secretary of ASOS.com, the global online fashion retailer, and I now have over ten years' experience in senior executive legal and compliance roles with different global businesses. I've been a Hammersmith resident since the first day I came to London from my native Northern Ireland over 20 years ago, and to see first-hand the real difference the talented and committed team here in at The Barons Court Project make to many deserving people from our local community is both humbling and inspiring.
