Head of Business Development & Communications

I am Felicity and I have worked for Derby City Mission since November 2016 and as a Nightshelter volunteer since 2014. I am responsible for seeking out new opportunities and creating practical solutions for their delivery. Similarly I am responsible for the internal and external communications which involves capturing and sharing the positive impact that our hardworking staff, volunteers and partners have on transforming the lives of the poor and needy in our city.

Prior to joining the team, I had a varied career in Human Resources and teaching. From a young age, I was aware of homelessness and the devastation it causes as a result of my mothers involvement at local shelters, I volunteered as soon as I was old enough! Having finally acknowledged that God needs to be in the driving seat of my life, my roots are firm in the foundations of Derby City Mission and I am privileged to be working for God.

I am mum to 3 very energetic children and I am supported by a fabulous husband. I love nothing more than being with friends and family, singing (badly) at church and exercising to loud music!
