Dawn is a Family Engagement Manager, and her key responsibilities include developing services to support prisoners and families who have a loved one in prison across a cluster of prison sites.
She worked in the early years sector for many years alongside completing a foundation degree in Early Childhood Studies and BA (Hons) in Education.
She says the charity’s approach that everyone deserves someone to speak up for them, especially the most vulnerable, and to empower individuals to make the most of their situation, is the reason she joined LAT. She also says the most rewarding part of her role is being a part of reconnecting families and seeing the positive outcomes of it.
