Joanna Melville, BSc (Hons) Psychology 2017

Joanna has six years’ experience volunteering with national charity Sexpression:UK in a range of pivotal roles. As Finance Director she overhauled the flat rate reimbursement system ensuring accessibility for volunteers from a variety of student backgrounds all over the UK. As National Director she manages a large student committee based all over the UK and abroad. She has created and implemented a new Child Protection monitoring process, and is creating welcome and volunteer information packs to increase retention and helping with publicity. 

Joanna has also been directly involved with the community, directly delivering sessions to hundreds of young people, including SEN and SLD young people in Manchester. Her work has improved SEN and SLD understanding across the organisation, ensuring further contribution across the UK, also enabling other volunteers to carry on her excellent work. The positive impact of change she has had on a national and organisational level directly affects hundreds of volunteers who now deliver high quality sessions, run inclusive events and campus advocacy, and build a better society for future generations of young people.
