I count myself lucky to have built a successful career leading and supporting services that improve the life chances of young people and the wider community.  

2018/19 has seen me increasing my work in mental health and working with inspirational people. 


In Development 


The Speakers Collective,  formed by 30 campaigners and speakers with lived experience of mental health and related issues providing a mutually supportive network.  Working together to share learning and ensure quality. 


The Hub of Hope is a first of its kind, national mental health database which brings together organisations and charities, large and small, from across the country who offer mental health advice and support, together in one place

A new charity aimed at improving mental health education for young people, their families and their educators.  Founded by international mental health campaigners - Jonny Benjamin MBE and Neil Laybourn. 
Our Thinkwell programme uses footage of Jonny's story from the award-winning Channel 4 documentary, The Stranger on the Bridge, to empower people and encourages discussion about emotional wellbeing for themselves and others.   We have been humbled by the effect these talks have had on others.
