"Hello, my name is Torie and I am the new Oxford Senior Coordinator! Before Jacari, I have worked with various charities that support unaccompanied asylum seekers, adult refugees/asylum seekers, vulnerably housed people, ex-offenders and people recovering from addictions. I have helped them accessing and succeeding in education and work. I am passionate about this area of support as it empowers and enables people to access their full potential. I am born and raised by the sea on the south coast of England - being outside is my happy place. I enjoy painting, cycling, reading and eating!"
