Hi, I'm Sonia.

My passionate belief is in the power of families and individuals to build thriving communities. I believe when we create meaningful connections, we provide each other with the platform to be amazing as individuals, and as a whole.

But genuinely connecting with others is about more than polite respect. It is about the complexity of difference, the challenge of empathy and the power of authentic engagement. It is the struggle to connect, that makes us human and helps us thrive.

Communities and organisations that honour and celebrate differences of age, experience and background enable us to all be better people – to create a world where we all belong.

I am excited to work with communities and organisations who seek to capture and embed the voices of children in their service design, delivery and evaluation. Such organisations are innovative and forward-thinking, searching for ways to be increasingly child-friendly in their practice.

By taking little steps today, we can pave the way for a more connected future, for our children and for ourselves.
