WYCCP Team

Jane Daguerre – Project Director

I have been Director of the West Yorkshire Community Chaplaincy since September 2009 and love running a organisation that really does make a difference in the lives of people and their communities and has such a brilliant and committed team.

My previous job was Chief Executive of Active Faith Communities a multi-faith, multi-cultural charity set up in 2002. AFC focused both on supporting faith communities in West Yorkshire to develop social and community projects and in promoting and developing community cohesion.

Before becoming Chief Executive of Active Faith Communities I established Leeds Voice as the Community Empowerment Network for Leeds and ran it for eight years.

Prior to establishing Leeds Voice I was variously a Development Manager, a Start Afresh and Volunteer Co-ordinator and a Basic Skills Co-ordinator. These roles have given me a wide range of experience of the voluntary sector and issues around volunteering and I have worked widely with the diverse and disadvantaged communities of Leeds.

Kelly Manton – Office & Finance Manager

I joined the WYCCP team in November 2006 job sharing the role of Administrator. Having come from a private sector background this was my first role in the voluntary sector. I am often the first point of contact for service users who visit WYCCP and my main aim is to make them feel as welcome as possible. My role involves looking after the day to day running of the office as well as the administration. I was recently appointed to take over the finance role following the retirement of our Fianance Officer.

Being part of the WYCCP team is both enjoyable and rewarding and no two days are ever the same.

Ron Williams – Resettlement Worker

I joined the WYCCP team in 2009. My primary role is to provide practical support to men prior to leaving prison and continue with that support once they are released. No two days are ever the same; as aspects of my work can change in an instance as service user’s lives can be both chaotic and challenging. Ultimately, the holistic support offered is to empower and transform the lives of individuals so they can live crime free life.

Catherine Davey – Resettlement Worker

I have been an active member of WYCCP since November 2009. Firstly as a volunteer Link Worker, then Assistant Key Worker and now I am a full time Resettlement Worker. My role is to support men leaving HMP Leeds out into the community. This is a very rewarding job where I feel proud to see first-hand, men who have no confidence or self-worth begin to believe in themselves and their abilities to achieve.  Due to the challenging and chaotic lifestyles of our service users, I have to have a flexible approach to work which I enjoy immensely. Working for WYCCP is never boring!

Amy Boucher – Volunteer Programme Manager

I work all day Tuesday and Wednesday.

Sheila Benson – Assistant Volunteer Co-ordinator

I joined WYCCP on 1st November 2013 as Assistant Volunteer Co-ordinator.  I’d previously worked here as a temp and found it such a rewarding role that I jumped at the chance of applying to become a permanent member of the team.  I had previously worked in the telecommunications industry for 20 years as a Personal Assistant so it’s a very welcome change.  My role is to support and work with our volunteers to enable them to provide a first class service to our clients.
