Helen is responsible for shaping, implementing and strengthening the organisation’s systems, processes and infrastructure to guide and support the growth of Safe Passage. She heads up finance, operations and HR; as part of the senior management team, she is across the day to day management as well as its strategic direction.
Safe Passage exists to help unaccompanied child refugees and vulnerable adults find safe, legal routes to sanctuary. We have reunited unaccompanied asylum seeking children from France, Greece, Italy, Germany, Belgium, Bulgaria, Syria and Sudan with their relatives. For those clients who arrive in the UK, we also support their transition to a new life.
Our organisation is powered by Citizens UK – a group that empowers community action. We combine the skills and resources of our staff and supporters to open doors, establish precedent and advocate for change.
We are determined to find a way to give everyone fleeing persecution safe passage.
