Acting Youth Work Manager

A fun fact about me is that I am so much of a melter and overthinker that it has taken me over 40 mins to try and think of a fun fact.


Started working for NIYF in May 2022.

I work on The Relentless Leadership Project, funded by National Lottery Community Fund NI and The Change Project, funded by DFC. Currently I am managing both projects whilst also delivering in Newry one day a week for RLP Drop In.

What I enjoy about my job is supporting young people through their housing issues and seeing how resilient they can be when facing the most challenging times of their lives. I also love being a part of the Homelessness and Housing Team in NIYF as we have an amazing team dynamic and always have each other’s backs. Everyone needs to feel that they are believed in, to feel safe and grow. I get that from our team which means I pay it forward to the young people we support.
