Neil joined Doorways in June as our new “Youth Support Worker- In Charge” and is keen to get stuck into the amazing work we do.

Originally from West Yorkshire, Neil now lives in Middlesbrough and is a graduate of Teesside University. He has been previously involved professionally in Youth, Schools and Community work in a variety of settings. These have included: Leading the Stokesley Area Churches Youth Project; Running summer outreach teams to South Africa with British Youth for Christ; Lead Worker for ‘Christians in Calderdale Schools’ and more recently worked within the ‘Princes Trust’ team for Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service. He is also an ordained Church Pastor.

Neil has a passion for helping young people and adults to be the unique people they are created to be and helping to assist them on that pathway through mentoring, mental health support and provision of practical skills to help them find their way forward along their life’s journey.

In his spare time, Neil loves meeting up with friends for coffee, meals, and days out. He particularly enjoys a visit to Nandos! He also has an adopted retired greyhound called Cain who now has no interest in running but prefers being a canine couch potato.

Doorways is once again fully operational in their office at Emmanuel Church Hall – just off Windsor Road Saltburn. Throughout the pandemic, Doorways have continued to offer support to young people in need and look forward to summer holiday activities.
