Interim Young People’s Team Leader / STAGE project outreach worker since 2019
I am currently leading the fantastic Young People’s CSE team at Basis. The service seeks to provide education and support to young people at medium to high risk of CSE. My role involves supporting the team in their work and attending local meetings regarding CSE.
I also work as a caseworker for the STAGE project, which is a partnership project across the North of England that aims to support women aged 16+ who have experienced or who are experiencing Sexual Exploitation. My role within this has involved supporting a varied caseload of women in a trauma informed way, providing education, a listening ear and supporting with access to services.
Before joining Basis I have worked for a variety of organisations in West Yorkshire working with young people and women including The Shine Project, St Luke’s CARES Youth Service and more recently the West Yorkshire Sexual Assault Referral Center
