Welcome Jo Young, AVOW Funding & Grants Officer!

Jo has spent all but two years of her professional life working in the third sector undertaking a wide range of roles: From directly working with a variety of funding bodies including grants, trusts, community and events, to online and corporate supporters – always with the sole aim of helping and supporting as many individuals as possible.

She has also been a Volunteer Manager and Social Prescriber – and she says she is only 32 years old!? A keen volunteer, she has found herself in a soup kitchen, been a befriender, and served as a flood warden… And even held the very privileged role of Games Maker for the 2012 Olympic Games!

When she is not being a very keen armchair athlete, she’s keen to show you up-to-date pictures of her Westie, Daisy! 🐕
