I hold a MA in Youth & Community Development Studies. I have until recently managed a youth work and connexions team at a locally based Charity, but sadly was made redundant in April 2011. I volunteer as a Trustee for Getaway Girls; the organising committee for Bramley Carnival and more recently became the treasurer for Friends of Bramley Park.
I have an interest in the positive use of social media when working and engaging with young people.Championing young people’s true and meaningful participation.
I have good knowledge and understanding of current youth policy and legislation. I have directly contributed toward the development of the strategic / business planning processes and policies for local VCFS organisations and their implementation.
