Meet the team: Sophie Turner

Hi, I’m Sophie and I started working at Nottingham Women’s Centre as the new Communications and Campaigns Manager in May 2020.

It’s been a strange time to start a new job while everyone is working remotely – it wasn’t quite what I was expecting when I accepted the role pre-lockdown! But everyone has been so welcoming and supportive that, even working by myself from my makeshift home office, I’ve never felt alone. In fact, seeing the incredible work of NWC and other local organisations during these challenging times has made it clear that community and collaboration is now more important than ever.

My role involves raising the profile of Nottingham Women’s Centre and other women’s services through marketing, communications and outreach. I also work with my fantastic team to support them in campaigning for positive change, supporting other local organisations, and helping women have their voices heard.
