Programmes Manager

Annie joined Yellow Submarine in August 2021.

Experience: Before joining Yellow Submarine I worked for an advocacy charity in Swindon for 8 years; overseeing independence and inclusion projects for people with learning disabilities. I am originally from Rochdale, and have always worked with people with additional needs; including volunteering at a Drop –in Centre and managing a retirement scheme.

Role within Charity: I am the Programmes Manager, a new role here at Yellow Sub. I will be working with the Activity Managers and support staff team to deliver a programme of stimulating, positive and fun sessions.

Favourite Yellow Submarine Memory: The fab, friendly welcome I got on my first day, including a lovely cup of tea!

Cats or Dogs: Dogs! I have a very cheeky Border Terrier, Scrabble, who keeps me on my toes. I love being active – so having a dog to walk with is great!
