I have worked for charities for over 25 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 several years experience working in the charity sector, in particular supporting those who are vulnerable through homelessness and or living with mental health conditions. I was first introduced to the Barons Court Project over four years ago, I started off as a volunteer before becoming a locum worker. I was then fortunate to have had the opportunity to work for a large charity. I am excited to back at the project working for a great organisation who do so much for the local community! In my spare time I enjoy staying active by rock climbing and rollerblading.
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.
I am a drug and alcohol practitioner with over 15 years’ experience working with vulnerable people. I facilitate the Recovery and Abstinence group on Saturdays at the project. I am an amateur dramatist and have been involved with various acting companies. In my spare time I like to listen to a bit of jazz.
Having had a career in the charity sector for several years, I’m very excited to be working with the Barons Court Project; a charity that has a remarkable impact on the local community. My role is to help spread the word about the BCP and to raise support for the incredible work that goes on here. I’m a former member of one of the only ukulele bands to come out of the West Midlands and an increasingly despondent supporter of Ipswich Town F.C.
Is a resident of Hammersmith and cares about the people that live in our Borough. He has been involved with businesses in London for many years, more recently building a global financial services firm. He brings with him experience from being involved as a Trustee with other local charities and a desire to help grow and develop our Project and to expand our services.
Has been a trustee of the Baron's Court Project since May 2015 and currently serves as the Treasurer. Born in Hammersmith, Will moved back to the area in 2004, and has since worked with various local voluntary organisations. Whilst at university, Will worked for several years as a volunteer for a student-focused mental health support service, and maintains a strong interest in mental health.
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 at The Barons Court Project make to many deserving people from our local community is both humbling and inspiring.
I have fifteen years’ experience in senior executive legal and compliance roles with different global businesses and, together with my fellow Trustees, it’s a real privilege to be able to use our skills, experience and external viewpoint to help support and guide Michael and his team in their vital work for everyone who visits the Project. It is a responsibility that we don’t take lightly, especially as the pressures our service users face continue to grow in these challenging economic and political times. But it is a responsibility that we all immensely enjoy and are proud to have been given. I spend the rest of my time on surfboards, in theatres, on golf courses, or walking, especially back home in “Norn Iron”.
Is the Business Development and Fundraising Director for SHP, a large London based homeless charity where he has worked for over 10 years. Prior to joining SHP Jamie was a Probation Officer and he still retains an active interest in the criminal justice system, particularly in relation to the role third sector organisations and community groups can play in breaking the cycle of offending. He became a trustee in 2017 having seen the valuable work the project does with vulnerable people, many with complex needs, in Hammersmith & Fulham.
Following a degree and a masters in Evolutionary Psychology, I moved into a career in communications and have spent the last 12 years working as a Brand Strategist. I am passionate about the power of strategic brand thinking to move organisations forwards to great success and have done this successfully for a wealth of businesses, government organisations and charities. Having lived in Barons Court since 2013 I am thrilled to be able to apply my expertise to this amazing organisation and hope I can help make a real difference to the fortunes of the Barons Court Project
My first professional role after graduating from Liverpool University in 1995 was working with vulnerable people who were experiencing a multitude of physical, mental and social care issues. I continued on this career path and now have over 25 years working in this sector. I have a passion and commitment for social justice and strive to improve the lives of vulnerable people, improving outcomes and reducing inequalities in our society.
I have spent many years working in the third sector initially as a practitioner then moving onto senior management roles. I now have a joint role as Assistant Director working for Camden Clinical Commissioning Group and Camden Borough Council commissioning services for people with mental health, learning disabilities and homelessness. I am honoured to have joined the board of Trustees here at Barons Court Project and hope to support the project in making a real difference to local residents.
I'm a commercial and compliance lawyer who has worked in technology companies and the oil and gas industry. I've been a local resident for 12 years and wanted to use my corporate experience to benefit the community, and help Michael and the team achieve their goals for the Project.
After completing my MA in Art in 2016 and my teaching qualification the following year, I began facilitating classes and workshops at various charities, having a strong interest in the ways that creating art can improve the health and well-being of individuals and communities. I feel so fortunate to have connected with the Baron’s Court Project, where I currently run the Tuesday art class as a volunteer. I see first-hand the dedication of staff and the real impact the project has on the community. My longstanding interest in homelessness and mental health stems in part from my own experience. After leaving the army, I struggled with addiction and mental health issues, ending up on the streets for two years before receiving help and support from homeless and veteran’s charities. I am very honoured to be offered a role in furthering BCP’s development and hope that my experience on both sides of social care proves to be helpful.
