I am the Service Manager who oversees our youth activities and casework service for young refugees and asylum seekers in Croydon.

I have previously conducted research with migrant domestic workers funded by the European Social Fund and volunteered as a youth worker in Amsterdam, Lesvos and Athens. I have also worked as a project coordinator and advocate with adult asylum seekers, refugees and migrants in Stockwell, London. When not at Young Roots, I am the Development Officer for the Islington Race Equality Forum.
