Our Team

Leanne Hill – Scheme Coordinator

I joined Home-Start Wokingham in November 2020 as a Scheme Coordinator, having come from a background in the emergency services, children’s safeguarding and a short time working in education. I have also previously been a Home-Start volunteer, which has given me a great insight into the diverse needs of the families we support.

I am looking forward to meeting the families and volunteers very soon and being able to support them in whichever way they need.

Elaine Strange – Administrator

I have been with Home-Start Wokingham District since August 2009. I currently work 24 hours per week providing administrative support to the office team and board of trustees. This work includes maintaining office records, banking and the monthly reconciliation of our accounts.

Amy Fennell – Fundraiser

I spent four years visiting families as a volunteer for Home-Start Wokingham which gave me real insight into the challenges facing young families and how much our support can help. I wanted to use my skills as a lawyer to do more so was thrilled to join the team, part-time, in 2019. As our Fundraiser my role is to help raise the money we need to fund our work. I also work to raise our profile within Wokingham Borough through social media and involvement in community events. I love the challenge of the role and knowing that, together, we are making a real difference to local families.
