Jo currently leads a local charity which operates a variety of programmes for those experiencing homelessness, addiction and poverty. She regularly sees and supports victims and survivors of domestic abuse, and witnesses the incredibly unfair and difficult situations they are in because of this. There are a multitude of barriers to individuals being able to receive adequate support for what they have faced. Prior to her current role, Jo managed the regional operations of a children's charity, and gained an understanding of the impact domestic abuse can have on children, but also the positive outcomes that some dedicated, specialist support can provide to those children. Charities like NDAS help break down the barriers, myths and challenges for individuals facing crisis and their families.
