As a member of Royton Youth Centre in Oldham I first attended courses run by the Association. I became involved in PHAB and the Young Volunteers before joining the staff of the Association at Borwick Hall and subsequently in the Preston office.

As a qualified youth and community worker I have worked in London and Calderdale. I have also worked training youth and community workers at St Martin’s College, Lancaster and Bradford College. I currently work at Bradford College.
