Last week you might have read the news that Gill Crawshaw is leaving Forum Central in August.
We have more news to share: Lucy Graham is joining us on 1 August. Lucy will be taking over the role of Development Worker, as part of our work supporting organisations working in mental health or physical and sensory impairment.
Lucy brings a variety of experience to the role of Development Worker, having worked and volunteered in numerous third sector organisations big and small, both locally and in her native Northern Ireland. Most recently, she lead a team in a start-up social enterprise, focusing on providing sustainable employment for people with mental health difficulties.
With a degree in Law and MSc in Psychology, Lucy feels strongly about human rights, equality and inclusion, and is passionate about better mental health for all.
Outside of work, Lucy enjoys exploring Leeds’ diverse culinary offerings – as with many adopted Yorkshire folk, she has a particular soft spot for a good pie!
Lucy is a great addition to the Forum Central team and we’re looking forward to working with her. Welcome Lucy!
