Meet the youth team

If you come to one of our events you will almost definitely meet Bahar…bahar

"I'm Bahar and I love video games, swimming, dancing, meeting new people, reading, and learning new things! I have two cats called Saffy and Sooty, who are adventurous, and constantly hungry.

"My favourite celebrity is Leonardo DiCaprio  because I love the way he uses his fame to shout about important issues, like climate change, and he's also an amazing actor. My favourite food is chocolate but I recently discovered the joys of eating instant noodles RAW… (send help)! 

"My favourite thing about my job is getting lovely feedback from young people and their parents about the positive difference our workshops and social activities have made for them!"

You might also meet Ellie, who manages the youth programme…ellie

"I'm Ellie! Birds are my favourite animal. I feed the crows in the park and now every time I go there they follow me!

"If I had a superpower I would want to be able to fly. Maybe then I can chase the crows instead of them chasing me.

"My favourite thing about my job is meeting lots of awesome, hilarious and friendly children, and having fun with them at our events!"

You’ll usually meet Cicely at one of our movie nights or leading a baking workshop!Cicely

"I'm Cicely and I have CF. My favourite animal is a sloth and I have a sphynx cat called Rupert!

"I like indie music and Disney. My hobbies include going to the gym, embroidery, going to the theatre (love musicals!), going out for food and seeing friends."

You’ll meet Ryan at our games nights…

"I'm Ryan and I have CF. I have a passion for gaming and creating content for Twitch and YouTube. My favourite video game genre is first person shooters but I do love a good adventure game like Sea of Thieves.

ryan"I am also a big Star Wars fan. I’ve watched all of the movies, TV show series, read most of the books/comic books and collect the memorabilia. If I'm not too busy with my hobbies I like to keep fit by going for a run, using my exercise bike or playing football.

"My favourite thing to eat is Chinese food but my ultimate comfort food is a good old Pot Noodle."
