Michelle, Community and Engagement Lead

My name is Michelle, I have been married for 15 years to Stephen, and we have two children Logan 13 and Amelia 12.

I began my career, with two years in residential childcare 19 years ago and have worked in various social care professions, most notably working within the 3rd Sector supporting young people and their families to build relationships with key people to support them to realise they have the skills to make positive changes and the support behind them to do this.

The things that are important to me are supporting those who find it more difficult to build relationships and who have lost the trust of those who are supposed to support them, Young people who have been hard to reach and needing a ‘leg up’ in life and families who just don’t know where to go anymore.
