Manju Jnagal

Team Leader

Hi everyone, I joined the team in the summer of 2019 and it’s been quite a journey. I have 15+ years’ experience in youth work and developing new provisions for young people all over the UK and Italy!
I have spent most of my career listening to the needs of young people and developing exciting projects where young people feel safe to grow. I love residential work where you take young people for a week to an outdoor activity centre and get them to try new things! My hope is to bring that experience and holiday provision to enact. I look forward to meeting you all.

Natasha Greenaway

Children and Families Lead

I have been working at enact since June 2019 as a Children and Families Community Worker. Ive always worked with children and families in different roles but my background is family support and social care.

I really enjoy working at enact and I find it is quite a unique community organisation in that it runs provisions that the whole community can enjoy and benefit from. I work with such a lovely diverse community of children and families and I love being part of something special. The location of enact is wonderful as it is surrounded by beautiful wildlife spaces and nature walks and getting out into nature is one of my favourite things to do.

Danny Bayes-Clarke

Youth Lead

My role is to plan and deliver youth projects for young people aged between 10 and 19. I really enjoy working with this age because we can support young people during their teenage years and help them to grow into more rounded and resilient human beings. Our aim is to make every young person value themselves and their local community. We want them to be positive role models for others and also have a positive attitude towards trying new things and challenging themselves.
A passion of mine is cooking and I am really happy that we have been able to run cooking projects with enact. I believe there is so much more good work that can be done at enact and am excited to be leading our youth team and provisions.

Sri Devi

Kids Club sessional worker

I am originally from India, living in this neighbourhood since 2017. When I found out Enact working with community children, youth and families, without any further delay I expressed my interest to volunteer which I started from the summer of 2019. I was truly inspired by enact.
Today I work as a sessional worker for Enact contributing my time and my skill and abilities to see the little children blossom into confident youth.
Previously I was working in the school as a support staff, I am comfortable working alongside children and enjoy a relaxed time doing puzzles, playing a game or even colouring a pic. It feels like treasuring my own childhood.
