Jayne Clark


Pronouns: She/her

Jayne is a registered social worker and interpersonal psychotherapist.
She has worked alongside children, young people, and their families for 30+ years. She has supported them through some difficult times ensuring their voices are heard, and the families and individuals have an advocate.

Currently Jayne works in the mental health sector and is a champion for change both in and out of this role, striving to support those who are often marginalised or undervalued in society. Jayne acknowledges that access to statutory support services is challenging, and resources are scarce, which is one of many reasons working as a volunteer alongside charities such as LGBTQ+ Project is so important to her. Strengthening community awareness and providing much needed resources to help meet need is vital to improving the mental health and wellbeing of our community.

Jayne also enjoys spending time with her family, much loved dogs and cats and likes to design outdoor spaces and enjoys creative painting…

Volunteering for LGBTQ+ Project has been a transformative journey for me. Working with local youth groups and the multicultural group, I enjoy making a positive impact, connecting with the community, and being part of something bigger than myself. It is truly fulfilling. I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute and grow through this meaningful experience.
