The New Leaf Programme Team based at Golden Gates Housing Trust in Warrington, has recently welcomed three new members of staff.

Jointly funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund (ESF), New Leaf is a £10.6 million 3-year scheme that works with multiple partners across Warrington and Cheshire to support local residents into employment, volunteering or further education and skills training.

To meet the changing demands of the programme the team has introduced two new Compliance Officers, Carla Robinson and Zoey Brown along with a new Administrator Aleks Golubowicz.

Andy Rawlins, Programme Manager, said “Our learning and experience from the first year was that we needed to significantly increase our capacity in compliance. Working for the new Audit and Compliance Manager, Kim Bate, Carla and Zoey both have previous experience of funded programmes like ours so will be on hand to support our partners in meeting all the requirements.”

Aleks meanwhile will take over as team admin support, following Caroline Burns move into the new role of Training Broker.

Andy adds, “The role of Training Broker was created after it became apparent that we could obtain significantly better value for money in the services we provide. Caroline will now dedicate her time and local knowledge to linking our participants in to existing training opportunities already available.

As with everything we do at New Leaf we want to ensure participants are always provided with the right support in the right ways.”
