Community Development Manager
I joined bpha in 2008, working as a Community Development Officer in our new developments in Cambridge. In 2015 I progressed into managing the Community Development Team.
I support the Community Development Team to work with local communities to help provide opportunities that enable residents confidence to grow, their voices to be heard and their skills to develop; and deliver realistic and lasting community solutions that encourage people to get involved and make a difference.
Some examples of my work within our Cambridge communities include ‘Able to be Independent’ (a support group aimed at residents with disabilities), helping to form a Community Council for Orchard Park and working with locally formed groups to take residents on lower incomes away on day trips that they would not be able to afford. I am extremely proud to have worked with some incredible communities and people who, with a little bit of support, have achieved some wonderful examples of community cohesion.
I have also worked alongside the local Young Peoples Worker to set up a youth group for 11-19 year olds.
