Our Chief Executive Officer
and Team Managers
chief executive office
I am the Chief Executive Officer for Sussex Clubs for Young People and Chair of Directors for Crawley Community Youth Service.
I have an active involvement in the community of Crawley as Treasurer for Crawley Lions and Director for Crawley Community Youth Services.
I am committed to improving the welfare of young people, offering them places to go, grow, achieve and to be the best they can be, through our wide range of activities.
I have been recently promoted to Operations Manager within Sussex Clubs for Young People, having previously been the Team Manager for the Horsham District.
I am a qualified youth worker overseeing a passionate team, who support the delivery of youth clubs, Purple Bus provision, detached and outreach and coming soon, the Depot youth space.
I have over 20 years of experience as a youth worker, and believe that all young people benefit from advice and support from youth services, which enables them to grow, develop and achieve their goals.
Mid-Sussex Team Manager
I joined Sussex Clubs for Young People just over a year ago, although I have worked for the charity on and off for several years, delivering sessions from the old `Hot Chocolate Bus’ now known as the Purple Bus.
I lead a fantastic team who engage with young people at local youth clubs and whilst running detached youth sessions.
We have recently taken over `The Bentswood Hub’ in Haywards Heath, offering youth and community services right in the heart of the area.
Training and Development Manager
I am a qualified youth worker and assessor. I have managed several youth and community projects and I am passionate about delivering high quality, transformative youth work.
I am a specialist in youth participation, young women’s and youth activism work. I have developed and delivered youth work training with the National Youth Agency and am Guest Lecturer at Chichester University focusing on youth related theory and practice.

Youth Services Development Officer
I have recently taken up a new post with Sussex Clubs for Young People as Youth Service Development Officer.
My role is to help continue current growth by offering our membership out to a wider number of organisations, to identify potential partners across the county where a Youth Work provision might add value to communities, and there is a dynamic for Sussex Clubs to be commissioned to deliver a youth work programme.
Alongside this, my aim is to have a strong presence in partnership meetings, forums and networking opportunities to grow the knowledge and understanding of Sussex Clubs for Young People and our service offerings.
