So these are the people employed by the “Association of Camerados” to promote the movement. Like many people you pass on the street we’ve had our share of tough times from being a struggling parent to drug and alcohol addiction, from family illness to mental health problems but we’ve also had much good fortune and done stuff we’re very proud of. We want the Camerados movement to be for everyone, through good times and bad.
Association of Camerados
Maff Potts, Founder
Known for being an awkward man in the homeless sector. He turned the Millennium Dome into a homeless shelter, managed the biggest homeless provider in the UK and ran the “Places of Change” programme for the UK Govt which radically changed homeless provision. He also indoctrinates school kids about funk & soul music and his humour is mostly misunderstood.
Jenny Fox, CEO
Having worked in the corporate world and run a radio station, she is a social entrepreneur most renowned for “Aspire” in Oxford, the multi award winning social enterprise. Thanks to Jenny’s eye for a business opportunity, the ex-homeless staff in Aspire run a number of businesses – ground works, removals, community transport, recycling etc. She also makes us all dance, eat cake, and is never far away from a box of fairy lights!
Sarah Mortimer, DM
We call her “El Capitan” because she is awesomely smart and has an uncanny knack of making things happen. Working mostly in Blackpool Sarah is a trained Counsellor/Psychotherapist and earned her spurs in Probation and with Fulfilling Lives, working with people with exceptional challenges.
Yvonne Dawson, Administration
Yvonne is the backbone of the Office Team.
Helen Parker, Finance Manager
She can think big (she ran the ticketing operation for the London Olympics with Ticketmaster) but also get her hands dirty (she now manages her own gardening business).
