Our Training and Development Officer

Mell is a qualified and experienced trainer. She has worked for colleges and universities, and delivered bespoke in-house packages for organisations.  Mell’s training draws on her own practice with the health and social care sector, where she held a number of roles supporting adults, children & young people and is an experienced Safeguarding Officer.  Mell joined Behind Closed Doors in 2018 as a Community Support Worker with our Prevention and Recovery Service where she provided emotional support with people recovering from domestic abuse.  Mell moved into the Training and Development Officer role in September 2021.  Mell has a BA in Psycho-social Studies and a Post-graduate Certificate of Education.

“Mell was one of the best trainers I have encountered- in authenticity, care, knowledge, and a real sense of respect for the experience and needs of different marginalised people.” Social Worker, Leeds Adult Social Care
