Simone started as a volunteer with CLI in 2013 while working in the travel industry. Her ability to strike up a conversation with anyone allowed her to build rapport with some very isolated individuals and support them to engage more with other relevant services.
Her natural charisma and infectious personality has ensured she is able to support those individuals she works with to move away from past lifestyles into a more positive future.
Simone is now employed as a Volunteer Coordinator for our Manchester projects. She is responsible for the recruitment, training and continuous professional development of our volunteer team
