Joy has lived experience as an asylum seeker and is currently completing a professional childminding course while she runs our busy creche. She has a natural affinity with little kids and lots of experience, including running messy play sessions for the Salvation Army. Joy is looking forward to qualifying so she can carry on her career as a professional childminder.
Patricia provides valuable peer support during the sessions as she has lived experience as a refugee in this country, but now has Leave to Remain. She supports Annabel during the sessions and as a mother of 4 children herself, is hugely welcoming to all the women who come.
