Hi, my name is Lou and I started working at Providence Row just over two weeks ago. My role is in fundraising, developing individual and church donations/support. I’m really excited to be here.
I have worked in the voluntary sector for over twenty years, predominantly in the homelessness sector and mostly as a front line worker. My most recent front-line role was working with women involved in street-based sex work.  I am a qualified youth worker so a lot of my working life has been spent in the youth sector.

Hello, my name is Annette and I started working at Providence Row in May this year as Enterprise and Training Coordinator. My last job was at a local authority supporting families that were furthest away from the labour market into employment. I felt that I could put my experience and qualifications in Information and Guidance to good use within the homeless sector and so applied for this job - only just making the deadline! And I’m really glad I did.
