Learn more about our dedicated team and what we do.

Lucy Binch


I’m the CEO, I’m responsible for leading the organisation to achieve its strategic and operational objectives. I joined Hope in August 2019, and I’m proud to work with such a passionate team, dedicated to providing support to the most vulnerable.

Liz Mallender

Accommodation Services Manager

I’m the Accommodation Service Manager and my role is to oversee the accommodation services and support teams. I started in November 2016 and the best thing about working at Hope is the opportunity to work alongside a fabulous bunch of people, who work hard every day of the year to bring vulnerable people some hope and security.

Jo Campbell

Finance Manager

I’m the Finance Manager and I’m responsible for keeping Hope’s accounting records up to date and in line with legislation. I started in December 2018. My role is challenging as it covers every aspect of finance within the charity – however this is what makes the job interesting and seeing the difference we as a team make to so many people is both motivating and rewarding.

Cathy Sommerville


I’ve worked for Hope since October 2020, and I’m responsible for managing all aspects of Hope’s admin. I really enjoy working with like-minded people, and feel I’m contributing to a very worthy cause.

Katie Chubb

Development Officer

I started working for Hope in April 2020, and it’s my job to oversee all aspects of fundraising and community outreach for the charity. Working for Hope is a real privilege- I see what an incredible job our team at Hope House do to support homeless people, and I’m passionate about raising funds to ensure we can continue to provide support to homeless people who need it the most.

Maggie Devlin

Senior Support Worker

I’m a Support Worker, and I’ve worked at Hope since 2008. I enjoy working for Hope because we provide support to rough sleepers, who are some of the most marginalised and vulnerable people in our society.

Sam Walker

Support Worker

I’m a Support Worker at Hope, and have been here since June 2020. I work at Hope House with homeless people in crisis- it’s my job to make sure people get the right support that will help them move on from homelessness for good, rather than just temporarily. I enjoy working for Hope as we have a passionate team who are dedicated to empowering individuals to become a better version of themselves.
