Jenny said: “I’m thrilled to be starting as Development Worker. I’m very much looking forward to meeting people and hearing all about what is already going on all around the diocese to tackle poverty.

“Ahead of us, we aim to build a network of support and resource-sharing to make our actions on poverty really effective. I sense that people are ready to engage with what we are doing and planning to do.

“The more people join together in this sort of work, the better and more effective it becomes and we see people’s lives transformed in God and in Christian justice.”
