Emer-Jay Van-Gills – Young Peoples Practitioner

I’m Emer-jay and I joined the LYC team in 2022 as a Youth Support Worker. In November 2023 I started a new role as Young Peoples Practitioner.

I have worked in various Youth support and Education settings with around 10 years’ experience. 

I thoroughly enjoy and have a passion in supporting young people to develop sound and healthy relationships with their peers and staff to create a happy, consistent, and stable environment in which to thrive and where feelings, thoughts and emotions can be expressed safely. 

Empowering young people to reach their full potential and move on positively into adult life is necessary and a right. 

I also enjoy Adventure/the outdoors, Bushcraft and camping as well as spending time with my family.
