Margaret Phillips

My career started in Brent where I delivered an outreach careers service to young people living in the Harlesden/ Stonebridge areas.

Over the years I have developed an understanding of the challenges and opportunities young people face.

My journey has been eventful and meeting one of my very first young people I worked with at a school in Harlesden made me so proud of what he had achieved, a father, a husband and employed as an IT specialist.

I have worked in large organisations where I managed large teams delivering services across London as well as volunteering for 6 years as a parent governor at Pinner Park first school.

Ever the optimist I want to be as proactive as possible.

I know that young people have the potential to achieve and with the right support this can happen.

I am excited to join the YHF team and look forward to developing partnerships that will change the lives of the young people in Harrow.
