Michelle Sharpe, “Achieve” Project Manager

Michelle is our Project Manager for this exciting programme supporting  young people with special needs before, during and after they leave school. The project helps them to face the transition challenges of moving from children’s to adult services and from school life to more independent life in the wider community.

Michelle has a background of working with young people with special needs, and is a credit to our team, with her knowledge and expertise that she has brought to the project.

 

 

 

 Jon Corr, “Aspire” Project Manager

Jon is our Project Manager for the Aspire programme, which helps to support and change the lives of young people who are at risk of offending or re-offending. The launch of the Aspire Project has already impacted the young people that Jon is working with, and is looking to be a success.

The support that Jon is bringing to these young people’s lives is crucial, and the work he has done to get the Aspire Project moving from it’s launch has been fantastic.

 

 

 

Katie Hall, Activities Co-ordinator and Administrator 

Katie works alongside Michelle on the Achieve Project, as well as taking on an administrative role in our main office. She helps Michelle to plan the activities in the Achieve sessions, and is able to implement different types of skills training for the young people into the framework.

The relationships Katie has built with the young people on the Achieve Project has helped her to put a framework into place to cater to each of the young people’s needs.
