Charlotte (Char) Bevan – Programmes Director

Char is  passionate about seeing teen girls know their full worth, value and potential. Her previous experience as a secondary school teacher and local youthworker have given her insight in inspiring and engaging girls in programmes that work. Char leads our team of mentors and course leaders in coordinating and delivering our innovative programmes.

Kerstin Friend – Operations Director

Kerstin has spent a number of years working in schools, youthwork and the charity sector as a qualified teacher and having also previously worked with the Children’s Society managing a CSE project – working with vulnerable teenagers. She is passionate about girls  overcoming pressures that hold them back and facilitating the church in serving the local community.

Helen Foster-Hall – Admin Volunteer

Helen is our admin volunteer, diligently sorting through referrals and getting all our resources ready. She is creative, fun and has a slightly mad red setter dog. Helen works with us 2 afternoons per week.


Our Trustee, Mentor and Course Leader Team

We have an incredible team of 20 dedicated volunteers including our wonderful trustees, mentors and course leaders. Flourish simply could not run without them. They are gifted bunch from a variety of local churches and include teachers, counsellors, an educational psychologist and some with mentoring and coaching qualifications and youthwork experience. All of the team are excellent encouragers and instinctively understand how to nurture girls towards realising their fullest potential.
