Our Team

Please see below our team members:



Founder & Director

“I have been a private landlord for 20 years and due to having increasing numbers of tenants needing support due to domestic abuse, I decided to get training in the subject. My passion increased and as a result I registered for a charity to offer extensive support with every area of abuse and as a refuge. I have volunteered for various domestic abuse charities and now am on my 8th year of working within this field. My passion and vision is to grow the charity to its full potential and continue making a difference.”



Housing Lead/Safeguarding Officer

“I have worked in Housing related roles for 18 years. I am driven by the desire to do the right thing and am passionate about the many complex issues that surround housing. I am a facilitator for the freedom programme and believe that when women pull together and support each other we can achieve amazing results. I am very proud to be a trustee for New Leaf Support”



Office Manager

“I was a serving Police Officer in Kent for over 17 years and for a number of those years I specialised as a Domestic Abuse Officer. I have worked within a multi agency structure to support and protect victims and ensure the safety of them and their families. I am dedicated to improving awareness and training and since my retirement I have continued this passion by being an active trustee with New Leaf Support”



Communications Lead

” I was a serving Police Officer for over 12 years in Kent and have always had an interest in working for a charity for victims of Domestic Abuse, having seen so many victims with no where to turn. I am always looking to develop my skill set and have completed a Level 2 in Mental Health Awareness, a foundation course in Bereavement counselling and have recently completed a Level 3 in Working with Survivors of Rape and Sexual Violence. I feel very privileged to be a trustee on the New Leaf Support board”



Legal lead

“I have worked as a solicitor and have been involved with Domestic Abuse charities for over 6 years. I am passionate about womens rights. As a volunteer for Rights of Women, I have been a part of an organisation that works tirelessly to empower women. I was very attracted to New Leaf Support because of its passion to give women a second chance and to support them through the transition. I am honoured to be a trustee for New Leaf as I am part of a group of women that have set out to make a difference within my community “

Along with working for New Leaf Support, I work part time for a local Alcohol, Drug and Addiction Rehabilitation Residential Centre.

The charities work is very valuable to many sufferers of Domestic Abuse and I think its nice to be involved in helping others to eventually lead a positive future.”
