Meet the team
Our Trustees are responsible for the strategic direction of CENCA and for the delivery of its organisational purpose for the benefit of the public. Several of our members joined CENCA last year (2019), following a period of significant organisational restructuring. Like all of our volunteers, trustees are recruited through a formal process, including completion of an application form, reference checks, interview and induction.
CENCA currently has 6 board members, with skill sets in key specialist areas including the Employment Tribunals service; the Magistrates Service; equalities; youth and community work; local government; finance; contract compliance; human resources; and accountancy.
Staff Leadership Team
The Senior Management team include Mary Clarke - Chief Officer, Danny Atwere - Head of Business Support and Gus Ghataura - Advice Service Manager.
They lead a team of over 17 staff and 20 volunteers, delivering generalist core advice services (advising and signposting clients on issues such as benefits, debt, employment, family, housing, immigration, and consumer matters); and specialist projects including Macmillan Cancer Support Advice; - for those affected by cancer; Pension Wise Guidance for the over 50s; and Housing advice projects.
CENCA has offices in Wellingborough and Northampton but the specialist projects cover the entire county (and further afield), and also provide outreach services in the community.
Our Languageline service provides translators, so anyone who speaks English as a second language may still access support from our advisers.
Our volunteers and staff offer peace of mind and a hand to help guide people to make good choices. We have earned our clients over £2 million in outcomes from April 2022 - March 2023 and are on course to help clients gain, so please get in touch if you (or your clients) need help
