Meet the Team – Kerry

Hi, my name’s Kerry and I’m a Caseworker in the Changes Team. I currently work 30 hours over five days. I only joined Nottingham Women’s Centre in May this year and am still in my Probationary Period until next month.  I’m going to take it as a good sign that I’ve been asked to participate in Meet the Team, hopefully, I’ve got the job!

Working at NWC has been something that I wanted to do for such a long time and until six months ago it looked like it was just a dream as schedules and jobs didn’t align, but here I am!

Working here makes me proud; I am able to say that I am part of an amazing organisation that offers support, encouragement, growth, knowledge and empowerment to all of our Service Users, Volunteers and colleagues and it is a passion that is shared.

When I’m not at work, I love reading, listening to music (mainly 80’s hairbands) and baking.

Meet the Team – Carli

Hello, I am Carli. I am a caseworker for the Changes project at NWC. I work 30 hrs a week over 5 days to accommodate being able to pick up my children most days. I feel very lucky to work here. I have never worked somewhere where my values and beliefs are so in line with the organisation I work for.

I have worked for NWC for 18 months now. I am still like the cat that got the cream. I love it so much! I love the variety of my role; delivering adult learning courses, one to one casework, sign posting, emotional support, advocacy, event organising and generally being surrounded by great women doing amazing things!

My favourite part about my job is delivering emotional wellbeing topics for Changes women.  It is a privilege to be able to hear about the amazing life skills that the women have developed through adversity and facilitating peer support for those who might be struggling at any particular time and needing a helping hand. Every week I see the transformative effect of a non-judgmental, woman focused approach working throughout the centre.
