I‘m Karen and I’m a CHEXS Outreach Worker. I started out as a volunteer 1 day a week with CHEXS 4 years ago and then went on 2 years ago to become an Outreach Worker.
I love engaging and supporting the children, taking them outside of their comfort zones and helping them to achieve their personal goals. Looking after a child’s emotional well-being and strengthening relationships between the child, home and school to break down barriers are areas I’m very passionate about. No two days are the same, one day I can be in the warmth of a school, the next out at Lee Valley Park in the cold and rain. I love the job I do.
