Tell us a bit about yourself and how you came to be at The Clock Tower Sanctuary
I have had a varied career over the past 40 years – working in the arts sector, the voluntary sector and most recently in local government. Over the past five years I have been working to improve housing and accommodation for care leavers, young homeless and unaccompanied asylum seeking children as well as supporting the development of a regional adoption agency.
I am passionate about young people in need being able to access the support and services the Clock Tower Sanctuary offers, improving the availability of decent homes for them, and in reducing the risk of homelessness. So when I looked at becoming a Trustee, the Clock Tower Sanctuary was an obvious fit and I’m delighted to have become part of the team.
What do you like most about working at The Clock Tower Sanctuary?
I’m looking forward to getting to know the staff, volunteers and of course the young people they work so hard to support, and being able to offer my time, skills and experience to support the Clock Tower Sanctuary to continue to deliver great services to improve young people’s lives and to meet any challenges and opportunities it may face in the years ahead.
What’s your favourite tea time treat?
I’m cutting down on caffeine and sugar, so a freshly made juice or a Beetroot Latte please!
