Our Team

Across our staff, volunteers and suppliers, 95% of those who work with us have direct lived experience of the issues we’re tackling.

We have first hand knowledge of the the impact of Covid-19 on our communities, the immigrant and refugee experience, navigating gender and sexuality, language barriers, cultural factors, social exclusion and racism. 

Our goal is to create social impact by equipping people and communities with knowledge, information & resources. Given our lived experiences, we live and breathe this goal every day.

Studying Postcolonial Culture and Global Policy at MA gave Jessica the theoretical and historical knowledge with which to begin to start understanding the complex intersections which impact on each individual. As such, she has been working on community projects for the past five years, dedicated to valuing time, care and human connection in everything she works on.
