Who we are

Our directors


Meg My passion is working with young people, and I believe in creating services that are helpful for all different types of people.

Before starting TEOM, I was a manager. I have worked in relationships and sex education, and ‘universal access’ youth support. I am also very good at training people. 

I was diagnosed with ADHD as an adult, and I can now look back on my life and see how it has shaped my journey and approach. I am very creative and driven, but always learning how to adapt my surroundings to bring out my strengths.


Caitlin I’m the art and technology part of TEOM. I do our designs, and I also made this website!

I’m autistic and have had severe ME/CFS for a long time, along with all sorts of other health problems as well. I am someone who thinks outside the box, and I’m very good at teaching myself things. I won’t be the person you talk to when you get in touch, but I’ll use my experience to make things better for everyone who has to go through what I’ve had to.


Lisette I’m a teacher and know a lot about helping people learn to read, write and make sense of the world.  I’ve had more than my fair share of mental and physical health troubles and I’ve been a carer for a long time. It’s really important to me to use what I know to make the world a better place for everybody. I’ve got lots of experience in making things easy to understand, working with all sorts of people, getting the impossible done and keeping things as simple as possible.


Niki With a background in education, local authority, and the charity sector, I’ve worked with many different groups of people delivering training, leading teams. curriculum design, developing policies and quality assurance practices. 

I have a hidden disability, so I am aware how difficult it can be to maintain employment while managing fatigue, poor health and tricky and embarrassing situations. As Ulcerative Colitis has taught me, it’s not always a manageable balancing act, but with teaching employers how they can help me in the workplace, together, we have made it work. 

I am looking forward to working with people and employers supporting inclusion, diversity, equality issues, and developing workable employment opportunities for all.


Jade-Anne I have a background in mental health, recovery, learning disabilities, community engagement and training. I’ve managed projects which have encouraged co-production and co-delivery to be at the heart of everything. I believe in social mobility, equality, empowerment and more importantly, happiness.

I live with Fibromyalgia, hydrocephalus and have a disability in my arms. I have ADHD and dyslexia. This has taught me that the world isn’t always an easy or kind place to navigate. I believe with the right support and good people around us, the challenges that can make us feel different or struggle, can be made reduced. I like to consider differences as gifts and to be embraced.
