Anita Powell

Volunteering and Community Coordinator

As Volunteering and Community Coordinator, I am lucky to work with a wide range of people from across our communities to enhance opportunities for the people we support.

I recruit and oversee a fantastic team of volunteers who offer their time and skills in our community hubs, charity shop, Tea Room and a variety of other roles. I work with individuals, groups and organisations to enhance awareness of everything that we do at Style Acre and I help to create opportunities for the people we support. I love bringing people together to share ideas, create excitement and engage people in trying new things, and developing themselves.

I joined Style Acre in 2017 as Community Fundraiser & Volunteer Coordinator (with 15+ years working in various roles in the voluntary sector), disappeared for a year in 2019 to introduce my daughter Hazel to the world, and came back mid-Coronavirus pandemic in 2020 part-time, taking on this new role.
