Rachel joined Hackney CVS in May 2015 as the Programme Administrator for the new and exciting Big Lottery Funded programme ‘Connect Hackney’. Rachel is passionate about the programme which aims to reduce and prevent social isolation for older Hackney residents. Working together with older people is a highlight of Rachel’s job, as sharing skills and knowledge means she never fails to learn something new. Before joining Hackney CVS, Rachel worked in the borough as a Health Support Officer, supporting older people to improve their health and wellbeing. In her spare time Rachel enjoys gardening and turning her hand to anything crafty.
