A New Beginning...



Finally, spring has sprung and as the snowdrops begin to fade, the feeling of a new dawn has arrived. With a new dawn brings new opportunities and we are delighted to announce the arrival of CEO Kay Nicolson, who has joined our organisation.


Kay has been given a huge A Way Out welcome as she has met with our staff and members of the board and looks forward to working alongside our clients as she volunteers on evening outreach.


Coming from a background in probation, Kay has a wealth of experience and knowledge that she will use to enrich and grow the support we have on offer. She has previously worked alongside A Way Out and is absolutely delighted to have joined us. We are all so pleased to be welcoming her and look forward to seeing the charity grow in her leadership and care.


We are also thrilled to have Tracey Brittain join our Criminal Justice Team as a Service Manager. Tracey joins us bringing a wealth of experience from probation, the voluntary sector and OPCC.


Alongside growing in staff, we have started fundraising partnerships with businesses who are wanting to support local charities, and we welcome Teesside Park, North Star Housing and Jacobs Engineering, alongside others, to bring fun ideas for staff to raise funds.

This fundraising support will enable us to practically empower and equip vulnerable and excluded women, families and young people to live lives free from harm, abuse and exploitation and reduce life limiting choices and behaviour.


There are so many fantastic opportunities available within A Way Out, and if this is something you would like to be a part of then contact info@awayout.co.uk or call 01642 655071 to find out more information on how you can be involved to make a difference.
