Lesley here, and I’m back to Youth Focus North West for the 2nd time! This time with a different role, a few wrinkles but even more fire in my belly!
I have over 18 years’ experience of youth work, working across both voluntary and statutory services including detached youth work, issue-based project work, rights-based advocacy and work within schools. Always listening, empowering, raising issues and supporting young people to shine. Lots of experience in running and managing projects and making myself redundant as young people take over!
Especially passionate about the underrepresented communities and groups of young people. A big supporter of Votes at 16, refugees welcome movement and amplifying working-class voices.
Own interests include making memories with my mini-me (my daughter), yoga, netball, women empowerment #girlgang and travelling. Usually always saving for some type of trip! Have a massive bucket list of places to visit!
Currently a trustee for Apex Trust, a charity that supports women.
