As a proud Brummie it is an absolute pleasure to become a board member for Compass Support and a part of the wider Pioneer family and do my bit to support the communities of Birmingham you all work with(in).
I am passionate about Birmingham and its communities and currently work as a Relationship and Contracts Manager for Birmingham Voluntary Service Council (BVSC) within their Communities and Older Adults directorate, where I have been since 2015.
My work predominately focuses on delivery of the Lottery Funded Ageing Better in Birmingham programme where I’ve had the pleasure of working with some of your Compass colleagues.
Outside of work I volunteer for a voluntary organisation called Disco Inclusive, offering a monthly night club night for 18-24yr olds living with autism and / or disabilities. Here they can dance the night away, have a drink, make friends and in some cases begin a relationship. As you can imagine it is extremely rewarding and a pleasure to be involved with. I also enjoy walking my Miniature Schnauzer, Nora and most recently loving life being a first time Dad to a baby girl called Freda.
