It is my job to steer the organisation to achieve our social mission in a way that keeps us aligned to our values, ensure we deliver excellent outcomes for those we support and that CLI is a great, supportive place to work.

I founded CLI back in 2013 together with Matt Kidd, built on our own experience of rebuilding our lives after addiction, mental ill health, and involvement with the criminal justice system.

I love that on a daily basis I know the work we do is making a positive difference in the world. And working with such an enthusiastic, hard working, positive team of people who genuinely care about those we support.

We would love to hear from you!
