After many years working with large charities and businesses alongside community organising, I now focus on supporting organisations, grassroots groups and networks who are working together around issues including homelessness, inequality, migration and climate change.
I am passionate about creating new ways of living and working together beyond separation – honouring our common humanity and interconnectedness. My dream is for a world organised around meeting the needs of all, rather than around the false idea of ‘deserve’.
I enjoy the creativity and flow that comes with creating connection and sensing the deeper wisdom emerging in groups. I enjoy bringing different approaches and methods to support people to step outside their usual patterns and ways of knowing, and allowing something new to open up. I am ever inspired by the traditions of Nonviolence and Active Hope.
As co-founder and director of a small charity (Street Support Network), I also understand the challenge of running an organisation where time and resources are limited, so I value efficiency, and offer flexibility in services and cost.
I am grateful to have a strong network of skilled and experienced collaborators with different specialisms, which enables me to draw in other skills and experiences, including through Reconnect Works.
I am based in West Yorkshire and work in Manchester, Leeds and online. I am open to travel further afield if there is a good fit. Please get in touch if you would like to explore.
