Meet the team at Clarendon Family Centre.

Sue Burgess - Centre Manager

Hello, my name is Sue Burgess and I am the Family Centre Manager. I am responsible for the day to day running of the centre and also working with partners to deliver services to families in Ashford. I support the Family Centre team of staff and volunteers. I am passionate about working with families to give very young children the best possible start and for parenting, which is often a challenging experience to be rewarding and enjoyable.

Diane Ludlow - Deputy Manager

I have been at Clarendon Family Centre as the Deputy Manager since 2013, I live locally and am married with two teenage girls - it only seems like yesterday that they were babies (and I remember how hard that was!) I have worked with children and families for many years and before coming to Clarendon I was a teacher at a local school. I absolutely love my job - I can't wait to get in each day and meet all the children and their families! I help run Parents' Forum and various courses at the centre. I love to cook at home  -  and have started to run family cooking sessions which have been great fun and very successful.

Where Next?

Leigh Smith - Centre Advisor

I am the Centre Advisor for the Family Centre and am often the first person families have contact with when they join the centre, and have come to know many of them well along the way as I have been here for over seven years. I can offer support for applying for benefits, finding activities in the local area and talk you about options for applying for childcare. I have two grown up children of my own and when I am not in the centre I love to spend time with my family; I am a doting Nanny to two grandchildren. I also like to travel.

Karen Brown - Outreach Worker

I am a part time Outreach Worker here as the centre. I enjoy being able to support the children and families who use the centre and getting involved in the groups and activities running here. Prior to starting my role , I was a very active user of the centre as a parent and could often be found attending Play and Learn, ActivTots and courses with my two young children. I also live locally, so am passionate about supporting families to access local services to help their children learn, develop and thrive.

Hannah Braggins - Outreach Worker

I am a part time Outreach Worker here at the centre. I really enjoy supporting all the families who come to the centre and I am involved in many of the play and learn sessions. I am a trained HENRY (Healthy Exercise and Nutrition of the Really Young) facilitator and deliver courses and advice to parents on this topic. I have a wide experience of children’s early learning and development. Before starting at Clarendon Family Centre I worked at as a preschool manager.
