Caroline has joined the team to support the new BIG Lottery Plot to Pot initiative. Supporting young people on their journey into work, with mentoring and support into the world of work.
Having worked in a wide variety of organisations from big corporates to small charities, Caroline changed her career direction in 2005 from being an accountant to an Occupational Therapist. Since graduating she has worked entirely in the third sector, but most recently she has been guiding and coaching individuals with long-term conditions and extended periods of unemployment back into work.
Caroline is passionate about empowering young people to create a more positive future for themselves, to live with the ups and downs that daily life brings.
Personal experience of disability has shown Caroline that a person needs access education and training to be able to flourish in society. She is most looking forward to helping young people build on their abilities whatever their impairments and/or background.
Outside of work, she loves adventures including tall ship sailing. Closer to home, cats, baking, theatre and cinema, keep her busy. Caroline is looking forward to learning more about cooking using the fruit & veg grown by our learners.
