Safeguarding Support

About me

My son was diagnosed with ADHD at age 4. Due to his struggles starting school, I began to feel that there was a lack of understanding and knowledge in supporting children with behavioral disorders. This led me to leave my job as a hairdresser and qualify as a Teaching Assistant. I then dedicated myself to courses in disabilities and Childhood Trauma and volunteered within schools to support children and their families.

Why team JHF?

I joined the JHF in March 2019. On first meeting the team I knew straight away that I would enjoy and flourish working within such a passionate, driven, knowledgeable team. Being a Youth Mentor really is a privilege and I really enjoy doing the best I can to support children and their families to have gain confidence, happiness and resilience to ensure they can reach their full aspirations.
