Young Leaders Programme Lead (They/Them)
I am the new Young Leaders Lead, and it's an exciting project to join. I am very passionate about young people having a voice and a seat at the table.
I have nearly 20 years expereince working with young people in the charity, mental health and arts sector. I am an educator and arts practitioner who's practice focuses on mental health and wellbeing, empowerment, participatory practice and creativity!
I have worked for various grassroots charities in London, managing, developing, facilitating projects with and for young people, providing a safe space for people to have their voices heard. My background was in community arts for social change. I am also a trainee counsellor Mindfulness practitioner and work in a trauma informed, compassionate way.
I have worked extensively in the LGBTQ+ youth sector, VAWG, and with young people with additional needs (disabilities, neurodiversity).
I am excited to support our future Young Leaders and join such an amazing team at Hummingbird!
