Meet the Team

Hi I’m Abby, a joint project lead for East Surrey Hospital. I love working with young people and helping them in their struggles, the opportunity to be in hospital with them is so incredible! Spending time with young people and letting them know their value is so important. I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family, exploring new places, music (listening and playing), reading and the occasional run!

Abby has been a youth worker for 5 years and in a voluntary capacity before that. She has a BA (Hons) in Theology, Ministry and Mission. She also works for a local church as a Youth Pastor alongside her Emerge role.

Hi, I’m Jackie. I’m a sessional youth worker at East Surrey Hospital Project. I’m passionate about all that Emerge does to help young people to find hope and peace in a difficult time of their lives. I have had the privilege of working alongside children, youth and adults in Africa and in England, as they discover how precious and valuable they are. I love to see eyes light up as someone realises that they are loved and accepted just as they are and as they learn that they can do it!

In my spare time I love reading, walking in nature with my rescue dog from Uganda, singing, painting and writing. I wish I loved housework just as much!

Hello, I’m Nic. I’m a youth support worker at East Surrey Hospital.
I love working for Emerge. It is a special organisation with wonderful caring people, full of great ideas that empower and inspire others. It allows everyone the freedom to be themselves and find out who they have been made to be.
I love being part of the team connecting with young people, making them feel heard and helping them to see their true value.
As a Mum of 4, it’s good that I enjoy cooking! It’s my happy place. However, I’m not a great fan of housework. I would much prefer to be in the middle of a creative mess trying out some craft inspiration I have discovered online. Jewellery making with polymer clay is my latest passion – go and have a look. It’s amazing!
