Shelley Blunden - Schools Worker and Administrator
I joined Engage in January 2017 as the administrator and project manager. I was previously a vicar's assistant, but my career background was in the commercial sector and not for profit organisations, working in the positions of marketing, training and development, training adviser, Human Resources and much more!
In 2019 I took on the additional responsibility of Secondary Schools Worker, going into local schools and Woking College, supporting youth and children's workers with Christian Unions and assemblies. I have always had a passion for children, sharing the Gospel with them and supporting those who take God's word and Jesus’ love out into schools and colleges.
In summer 2019 I completed a course qualifying me as a Mental Health Youth First Aider, accredited by MHFA England. The course gave me a thorough understanding of mental health and mental illness, and how to see the signs in young people when they they need support. I also hold a qualification in Youth Counselling which has enabled me to launch the Engage & Emerge Mentoring Programme at Engage.
