Claire joined HCT in November 2014, from Nacro, the UK’s largest national crime reduction charity, where she was the service manager of a flagship helpline.

Prior to this, she worked as an Assistant Director for School-Home Support, a national children’s charity that supports vulnerable children and young people, working with them and their families to help overcome the barriers that are preventing them from being in school, ready to learn. This built on eight years of increasingly senior roles at Catch22, another national crime reduction charity working with the most disadvantaged and vulnerable young people in our society, with her final 5 years in Hackney leading a pupil referral unit and youth inclusion project.

Claire's passion for working with, supporting and enabling people brought her to the role of Head of Community Transport and Stakeholder Engagement.
