Reaching People | Leadership Project Manager

I joined Reaching People in August 2020 as the Leadership Project Manager. My role as Project Manager is to deliver on the Leading in Leicester and Leicestershire Project which aims to roll out training and network programmes for our community from grass root levels to experienced and future leaders, in all aspects of working in the community and voluntary sector. I am excited about leading this project and about the opportunities that will arise for Leicester and Leicestershire.

I am very excited to be a part of this opportunity and believe this project will have a positive impact on sustainability in the VCSE sector within Leicestershire.
