Service Delivery Manager

My role

I lead the adult women's team, attending meetings and advocating for women on an individual basis and supervising staff. Alongside this, I provide training nationwide to educate about sex work and sexual exploitation, with the aim of education and reducing stigma. I enjoy developing partnerships with agencies across the city, to improve outcomes and experiences for those who we currently support and may support in the future.

My background

I've worked in Leeds for the last 20 years, working in housing, drugs and alcohol and dual diagnosis. I've built positive working relationships with a wide range of services. Prior to joining the Basis team I partnered working on evening outreach for 4 years. Before joining Basis I was a great admirer of the organisation, I was very impressed by the ethos and delivery.

I love being outside in all weather with my dog and horse, I find this a really good way of relaxing. I try to get out for a ride every day. Self care is important to me and this is my way of unwinding outside of work.
