Meet The Team

The One Love Team

Our trustees and small team of staff all started out as One Love volunteers and brought a range of experiences to the charity.

Our trustees decide the charity’s strategic aims, supported by our staff and volunteers who are involved in the day-to-day running of the service

Jessica Ellis
Jess has previous trustee experience at a local preschool where she was the Chair, Designated Safeguarding Officer and a line manager. She has extensive experience volunteering with several local charities. 
 
She joined The One Love Project in August 2020 and has undertaken many different roles across the charity. Jess has always been struck by the sense of community and belonging that is found at The One Love Project.
Sharon Yavuz

Director of Corporate Governance at Ethos Communication Solutions Ltd, a privately owned company specialising in managed print services and office communications. Sharon has experience in leadership, finance, communications, operations and logistics.

On her first shift as a volunteer at One Love, she distributed refreshments to guests on a bitterly cold December night in 2020 and was impressed that “whoever came through the door, whatever they were wearing, whatever they said, they were welcomed and treated the same.”

Hollie Wells
Hollie has over ten year of experience establishing and managing national and international charity partnerships as a Corporate Partnerships Manager.  Volunteering with The One Love Project for nearly three years, and wanting to do more to support people like our service users, Hollie had a change of career and is now working as a Opiate Recovery Coordinator at the Forward Trust.  
 
As a trustee, Hollie can use her blend of professional strategic skills and more hands-on experience to help The One Love Project grow further.
Rhiannon Jones

Senior Communications and Marketing lead for 10 years in various public and private sector organisations, Rhiannon supports the board with in-depth knowledge of Public Relations and marketing strategy. 

Rhiannon was passionate about the One Love cause for many years before she joined the board and was keen to lend her skills to such an important community body. She now volunteers at least twice a month at a service and loves meeting the diverse range of guests we have come through our doors! 

Our aim is to provide opportunities for a brighter tomorrow.
