I love working for FFL! My specialism is cookery – I really enjoy inspiring families to cook. My own children are now adults, but I still love to cook for them and I often get asked to make roast dinners and cheesecake! I’ve previously worked as a family support worker in a primary school and my favourite hobby is walking in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.
Admin and Finance
Hi my name is Pam and I volunteer with Flourishing Families, helping with day to day administration and operational stuff. I am a bit behind the scenes but do help out with some of the clubs/classes too which I really enjoy. I like a good walk and spending time with family locally and abroad.
Hiya! My name is Skye, and I am an undergraduate intern at FFL. I am studying Environmental Science at Leeds, and have lots of experience volunteering in children’s work, including at FFL. You will often find me between the pages of a novel, but I also love any chance to be creative and sociable, whether through baking, arts and crafts, or writing!
Senior Project Leader
Hi! I look after the language and literacy projects at FFL. I have a degree in Education and TESOL, a Master's degree in Education and I am CELTA trained.
I love teaching both children and adults. More often than not, you'll find me looking for the next best children's book to read with our families at FFL!
Hello, I am one of the interns at FFL, I will be helping out in the social media communications for the charity and assisting in the various clubs FFL offers. I am a Fine Art graduate from the University of Leeds and outside my internship you will find me embarking on various craft projects involving crochet or my sewing machine!
Chair of Trustees
Hi! I’m a volunteer for Flourishing Families and lead our great team of trustees who oversee the running of the charity. I get to chat to our supporters about our work and all the exciting changes we’re seeing in the lives of families. When I’m not at work, I enjoy walking my dog Frisbee, or sitting on the bank of a lake catching fish.
Project worker and Systems Coordinator
Hi! As systems coordinator I help to develop the ways we organise and run our work here at Flourishing Families. On a very different note, I also run some of our mentoring sessions and so get to do lots of arts and crafts! I studied Maths at the University of Leeds, and when I’m not at work I love reading and crafts.
Hey, I’m an undergraduate (placement) intern working at FFL. My particular focus is within the cookery club outreach programmes where I am helping to develop nutrition education resources in a fun and exciting way. In my free time I enjoy experimenting with recipes, and going to the gym.
