Welcome to the team!

Here at SOAR, we are constantly evolving and changing in the pursuit of excellence. To help achieve this, our recruitment processes are about getting the right people, to fit the right posts. Here is an introduction to the latest members of our team:

Barbara Russell - Longley 4G Business Development Manager

I am so excited to have joined the team at Longley 4G as Business Development Manager. My role is to ensure that Longley 4G is a vibrant and sustainable community centre which provides support and leisure activities for the people of Longley and the surrounding areas.

I was brought up in Southey Green so I am very passionate about delivering activities that will improve the quality of life for Longley 4G members.


Lyndsey Crossland - Dementia Peer Support Worker

I will be supporting people with dementia, offering support, engaging in activities, and ensuring their overall well-being. I will be developing connections with the community and other organisations to ensure we get SOAR Community out there so people come to SOAR for support. I want to create a supportive environment for those affected by dementia.

I can’t wait to see where this role takes me! More cafes, more groups, and more support for people with Dementia.

Outside of work, I love to travel and with having a tourer we often go away at weekends with our beautiful new dog Luna! Countryside and walks helps with my mental health. I have 6 grandchildren which takes up my time too.
