“When I walked into The Source I felt like I’d been there forever. Its ethos of helping people to find their forte in life is exactly in line with mine,” she commented.

“I have worked with people from a cross section of society, including prisoners, and firmly believe people can change their direction at any point, given the right help and support.”

Tricia Smith, CEO of The Source, said: “We knew instantly Natalie was the right person to enhance our management team. She is dynamic, driven and compassionate and has inspired young people and adults throughout her life. She brings an outstanding record of success to our organisation.”
