Hasy

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.”

My vision is to ensure that the brilliant services of New leaf Support are underpinned by high quality policies, procedures and strategies, to support the continued success and long term resilience of the charity.”
