Alison Skinner

Community Developer (Holsworthy)

I only joined TTVS in January 2023 as a Community Developer for Holsworthy.  I come from a school admin background but have wanted to work in the charity sector for a long while.  When this job came up it seemed an ideal opportunity to have a change of direction and to ‘make a difference’ on my home patch!

TTVS are a fabulous team and it is lovely to work with people who have the wellbeing of others at heart.  There is a lot to learn but already I have been out and about meeting lots of people and groups in Holsworthy – luckily it is the area where I have always lived and I already know a lot of the people I am now working with on exciting projects! 

When I’m not at work I love knitting and craft, walking and spending time with family and friends ( including our gorgeous Granddaughters), and travelling.
