Who's Who

At Donnington Doorstep we keep our doors open thanks to the hard work, enthusiasm and creativity of our staff and volunteers. In keeping with our family-friendly ethos, most of our staff work part-time to fit around their other commitments and are flexible to ensure support is always on hand at Doorstep. You can get in touch with any of us via our general email address and phone number.

In our offices upstairs:

Beth Knighton is our Charity Director, always on the look-out for new partnerships and funding opportunities, while Noora Firaq, Finance and Operations Manager, takes cares of our finances and the smooth running of the organisation.

Over in the Youth Space:

Aziza Shafique is our Youth Leader, with Youth Workers Angie, Joanne and Oana. Our Step Out project is managed by Nicola Holmes-Brown along with specialist project workers.

Downstairs family Drop-In:

Our staff are Aziza Shafique, Tasneem Hussain, with others providing sessional support. Aziza is also our Domestic Abuse Champion.

In Doorstep Kitchen:

Our Wednesday cafe is run by Tasneem Hussain.


Katherine Cooper is the Pre-School Manager, with assistants Sarah, Haleema and Jo, along with other sessional staff.

And across the organisation we benefit from a wonderful group of volunteers, currently including

Hannah, Elena, Ann, Brian and our Board of Trustees

It is the warmest, friendliest place and I have always felt welcome and known. When I've needed it, staff have had excellent advice and when I haven't they've had smiles and great play ideas for my son. Thank you again and again!
