MEET THE TEAM
The people behind the vision.
Founder and Chair
A Critical Care Nurse and RAF Medical Reservist, Natalie began her career in London where she also studied for the Diploma in Tropical Nursing. She has worked overseas in resource-poor settings, most recently in a challenging humanitarian role serving the forcibly displaced Rohingya population. Natalie has witnessed the negative mental health implications for front-line staff working in high pressure environments, both in the UK and abroad. Determined, and driven by the belief that challenges should be faced together, she brings a vision of creating community through peer-support.
Co-Founder and Secretary
Keira brings 10 years' experience of working within the charitable sector. With a background in Emergency and Critical Care Nursing she is all too aware of the fundamental need to improve support services for the nursing and midwifery workforce, and has helped to implement several staff wellbeing projects. Keira relishes a challenge and is motivated to bring about change, coordinating and participating in numerous fundraising initiatives over the years. In her spare time, you may find her walking her dog and sipping a G&T, although usually not at the same time.
A Graduate of the Florence Nightingale School and LSHTM, Sarah is a dual Registered Nurse and Midwife. Navigating acute emergencies within her NHS role, she is keen to promote a new narrative around mental and emotional health and is an advocate for those facing difficulties. In addition to her passion for healthcare Sarah is a published author of books for young people, through which she has assisted in several charitable projects and received multiple awards. Pandemics aside, when she's not writing, Sarah may be found walking by the sea, reading and travelling, often in the name of research.
As a senior Primary Care Nurse with an ED background, Sahar brings extensive experience of caring for high risk vulnerable populations within Central London, most recently in her challenging role as a homeless health nurse practitioner providing outreach services to rough sleeping persons during the Covid-19 pandemic. She has previously volunteered with several charities, including Samaritans, and is acutely aware of the importance of providing support and encouragement to colleagues. Sahar is a fluent Farsi speaker with an adventurous spirit. A winning combination.
