Emma Boronat (Project Worker) and Peter Wellfar (Premises Manager) have both departed for pastures new. We thank them both for their enthusiasm, commitment, humour and hard work and wish them all the best in their future careers.
We are delighted to welcome Sophie Rae (above) to our staff team, who is our new Gateway Centre Project Worker. Sophie joins us from an organisation called Women in Prison, where she worked with women just prior to their release from custody, offering support with areas of need such as housing, employment, education and substance misuse.
Gerry Donnelly also joins us at the end of May, as our new Gateway Centre Team Leader. Gerry has a lengthy history of working in the charitable sector, particularly in hostel-type accommodation. He has worked extensively with people who have complex support needs, with a particular focus on key working, support planning and risk assessment.
We warmly welcome Sophie and Gerry and are looking forward to being able to progress our services further, now that the Homeless Support Team has a full complement of staff.
