Hello from our CEO

I've been based in Sussex since 1999 and have been involved with community volunteering since 2001 when i volunteered as a mentor working with young people in East Brighton. I have spent my working career in the charitable sector leading projects that have supported a range of wide of people, communities and ambitions. I began my third sector career being part of a team that supported people who are at risk of homelessness and who are in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. I have managed numerous projects working with vulnerable young people and established a project that specifically worked with young refugees and asylum seekers. I later founded a charity that championed youth volunteering and youth action. For over 11 years i was CEO for a local organisation that supported and empowered autistic adults through the provision of range of holistic services. More recently i have worked for the Woodland Trust as their Weald and Downs Treescape Lead, working across the South East to support nature recovery at landscape scale


I joined LDCA in September 2022 and am incredibly pleased to have joined a team of highly skilled and professional staff and volunteers. I am immensely passionate and honoured to lead an organisation that has such a strong social purpose and huge positive impact for so many people in our local community. I'm proud of our staff and volunteers who provide an extensive range of advice for people who are facing difficulties and who need good quality unbiased advice
