Leroy McConnell – Youth Work and Participation Manager

Hello, my name is Leroy and I am the Youth Work and Participation Manager for Pause. My aim is to ensure that you have a great experience with us and I would like you to get involved in some of the other activities we are planning. Pause is a place where you can develop your skills and learn new things in a therapeutic and supportive environment.  

I am a qualified Youth Worker and a mental health service manager, a commissioner leading on a mental health campaigns, as well as lot of other bits and bobs! I think it’s safe to say that throughout my work I have kept young people, young adults and their families at the centre of what I do.  

I feel strongly about community development and that those around us (the community) can support us and you through a number of personal challenges. I am here to assist you in your journey in a range of ways. I like try new ways of do things and at times this might feel risky (as its new) but someone has to do it first. I like to call it innovation.
