Hi, I’m Vicky. I have 14 years’ experience of working within the voluntary and community sector and joined the Newground Together team in January 2020. My background includes managing borough wide youth work initiatives, supporting vulnerable adults into work placements and generating funding. At the age of 26 I also set up a CIC offering ‘voluntourism’ placements for university students to take part in regenerating rural schools and working with children in care in Eastern Europe.
As one of the newest members of the Newground Together team I have seen an eventful year, supporting communities across Calderdale. As Communities Programme Coordinator for the area I feel privileged to coordinate two incredible teams delivering on both Youth Work and Employment & Skills Support, allowing us to work with anybody from primary school age to retirement across Calderdale.
