Candy Whittome, Social Inclusion Case Manager

Realising your potential’ is an over-used term, but for me it goes to the heart of why I do what I do.  We all have talents, and many of us may not be aware of them, or have not had the encouragement or space to realise them. Unlocking that potential, both to ourselves, and to others, can be a life-changer, and that is what excites me about the work that I do.  I bring to the job years of experience working in different capacities with people who face great challenges, including those living in war zones, or in prison, or in the classroom as adult learners after dropping out of school, and am enormously excited to be working with Genius Within on the NOMS-CFO project, which goes to the heart of what I believe.
