Melissa Turner

Project and Outreach Assistant since Sept 2019

My role

I support the delivery of the projects here at Basis through a mixture of admin work and direct work with service users through drop-in sessions. On a normal day you will find me in the office working on all kinds of varied tasks for different parts of the organisation.

My background

I am currently studying Psychology a the University of Leeds and am working here at Basis for my year in industry placement. Prior to moving to Leeds for my studies I lived in Cambridge and I am thoroughly enjoying big city life in the North.

A little bit personal about me

As a feminist myself, I take great pride in working for an organisation that places the voices of women at the center of their work. In my spare time I enjoy reading, cooking and listening to music (particularly soulful jazz!). I love to hang out with friends and family and am always searching for someone to explore the wonderful city of Leeds with !
