JESSICA – PROJECT MANAGER

I have been the Project Manager at Broxtowe Youth Homelessness since October 2013. Previously I worked in the Homelessness department at Broxtowe Borough Council, which is where I first heard about Broxtowe Youth Homelessness, before going to work for various other housing providers and charities. I am very proud to be part of Broxtowe Youth Homelessness and I am passionate about the work we do.

DAVID – FINANCE WORKER

I have been the Finance Worker at BYH since June 2017. I have over 40 years experience of working in finance and benefits at local authorities and for a large multinational charity, where I was involved, amongst other things, with the management of homeless hostels across the East Midlands. I enjoy working with numbers and hope that my experience can help this great charity continue to grow and achieve.

Staff-Jane - Broxtowe Youth Homlessness

JANE – SENIOR PROJECT WORKER

I’m Jane, I’ve been a Project Worker at BYH since 2014, and I am now the Senior Project Worker. Prior to that I worked with looked after children & young people with challenging behaviours for 12 years.

Amongst other things my role involves me delivering training to new recruits to help them achieve a level 2 qualification in preparation for them going into schools to deliver our homeless prevention workshops.

I really enjoy my role here at BYH, we’re a small team with one thing in common….. making a difference! It has given me a great insight into the complex issues around homelessness and an understanding of how valuable the work we do is to the vulnerable groups that we work with.

I have met, and work with, some remarkable and inspirational young volunteers that have experienced homelessness themselves and without them BYH just wouldn’t be the success that it is.

JAMIE – PROJECT WORKER

I have years of experience supporting individuals with complex needs such as mental health, domestic abuse, substance misuse, homelessness, and all round advocacy needs. I am trained to NVQ level 3 in Advice & Guidance, Health & Social Care, and Education & Training, and have a strong knowledge of mental health issues, therapies, and medications. I have also recovered from lived experience of mental health, which gives me passion and empathy to support others in similar situations. I have extensive experience of how stigma and lack of understanding can affect sufferers, and I am passionate about changing the universal knowledge on these issues, and for education to be implemented on them in schools. I am really into music, health & wellbeing, and spending quality time with family.

AYANNA – PROJECT WORKER

I thoroughly enjoy working with children, young people and families. Prior to my role at BYH I was a Child Protection Social Worker for 3 years and have work experience within schools, youth offending and working with homeless men with substance misuse.
I believe everyone should be given the opportunity to meet their potential and I really enjoy helping people achieve their goals.
As the drop-in worker I am dedicated to provide support and advice. This sometimes can mean focused work but on many occasions, general chats and a cup of tea is just as effective!
I have been made to feel very welcomed here at BYH as the latest recruit and I look forward to meeting the many faces that BYH help and support.
