Amanda Shields
MARC Programme Manager

Hi, I am Amanda and I am the Programme Manager for the MARC project. I have been in this post since September 2015 and I am enjoying the challenges and rewards that the job brings. I am also a qualified Social Worker, and my interest has always been to work with individuals who experience issues such as substance misuse, mental health issues and homelessness. I have a range of experiences and knowledge that I have brought to this project, and hope that it can be used to benefit clients and the organisation. I am committed to supporting people who are marginalised and oppressed in society to have a voice, improve their quality of life and an opportunity to achieve their goals. My favourite quote that I share with people who are struggling in life is “Let everything happen to you. Beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final”.
