Who we are

We are an enthusiastic team of Christian youth workers based in the local area of Tavistock

We employ a full-time, fully qualified Youth Worker (see below) who manages a team of trainee youth workers and a team of volunteers. Our trainee youth workers are foundation and degree level students, including some students from South West Youth Ministries (SWYM).

I joined Catalyst in September 2017 as a student youth worker.  I have lived in Bere Alston all my life but recently have moved to Tavistock and am setting up a new home for my married life with Alice.  

I am excited to take on a  new role as a full time Youth Worker.

I joined Catalyst as a trainee Youth Worker in September 2022. I have lived in Tavistock all my life and have just finished my A levels at Tavistock College. I am excited to see what the year ahead will look like and support the young people in the school too.

I am a big fan of all things media and I look forward to bringing those skills to Catalyst.
