(Claire joined HCT in November 2014, from Nacro, the UK’s largest national crime reduction charity, where she was the service manager of a flagship helpline.

Prior to this, she worked as an Assistant Director for School-Home Support, a national children’s charity that supports vulnerable children and young people, working with them and their families to help overcome the barriers that are preventing them from being in school, ready to learn.
