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:

Nicola Holmes-Brown is our Charity Director, always on the look-out for new partnerships and funding opportunities, while Rita Barrow our Finance Manager, takes cares of our accounts and Rebecca Durrant, Operations and Development Manager looks after the smooth running of the organisation. Naomi Dulson is our Centre Administrator keeping the building in action.

Our Universal Services working with Families and Young People 

Sophie Jordan is our  Early Years and Family Support Manager overseeing our Family Play sessions alongside a fantastic team of talented Youth Workers and Play Assistants including Farhat Abbasi, our Family Support and Outreach Worker. Our Youth Club sessions are managed by Emily and our brilliant youth work team.

Our Specialist Child Exploitation Team

Specialist project workers run our Step Out Project supporting those at risk of or experiencing exploitation.

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

Judy and Karen and our Board of Trustees

Doorstep is like a home from home. The children love being around their friends and they get to do creative activities with the play leaders. The bonfire and toast is always a firm favourite every Wednesday!
