Having worked in the VCS for over 15 years, developing partnerships and building the capacity of members of the community to tackle areas of social injustice are underpinning values that are close to my heart. I am committed to ensuring people have a voice, are able to fully participate in their community and are supported to realise their potential. It is through the valued support I can offer organisations like Hart Gables, that people have hope.
I began volunteering at Hart Gables in 2016, through this outstanding organisation; after my undergraduate degree and employment contract with Teesside University ended, I’d found a worthy cause to dedicate my time to. Personally speaking, throughout my life I have consistently, and continue to strive to be an advocate for equality, and having a number of close friends within the LGBTQ+ community, Hart Gables is a highly valued charity to me, our life ethos and moral scruples align. I have witnessed first-hand various forms of social injustice, perpetrated upon those I care about and others; and indeed, how the subsequent fallout of those situations adversely impacted these individuals, undeservingly so. Concurrently, I joined Hart Gables to contribute towards enacting positive social change in a proactive and pragmatic manner.
