Meet Kerry!

The FFL team are really excited to welcome our newest member of staff, Kerry! Kerry recently moved to Leeds to join the team and bring all her expertise to the work of FFL!

So Kerry, where are you from? I’m from Cheltenham, but I lived in Oxford for 6 years before moving to Leeds.

What is the best meal you have ever cooked? Probably a chicken and chorizo pie or a chocolate fudge cake!

Would you rather be able to speak to animals or speak all foreign languages? Definitely speak all foreign languages!

What were you doing before joining Flourishing Families? I was working with children in care and their families in Oxford and performing in as many musical theatre productions as I could find!

What excites you the most about working for Flourishing Families? I’m glad to be able to support families in what feels, at the moment, to be a really tough time for so many. It’s an exciting thought to get to be part of a team building new projects to support the community around us. I also love meeting new people and can’t wait to get to know the families FFL is working with.

I’m a Somebody

“Before this group, I felt like a nobody. Now I feel like somebody.” This was the answer 8-year-old Evie gave when asked about the difference our Activity-Based Mentoring Group had made for her. This sums up for us why we do what we do. Everyone deserves to know that they matter, whatever their circumstances and challenges.
