Caroline Garrity – Office Manager

Caroline joined Youth Focus: North East back in August 2002 as a part-time administration officer, and in 2005 she was appointed full-time Office Manager. Caroline’s overall responsibility is to manage and maintain the Youth Focus: North East office to ensure an effective and efficient support service.

Caroline works closely with the Chief Executive and the Programmes Director providing professional administrative and human resource support.  Caroline maintains all day to day financial activity within Youth Focus: North East and works closely with the Chief Executive in constructing management accounts, budgets and financial reports. She helps to assist in preparing and monitoring budgets, producing reports and statistics for both the Board of Directors and funders when necessary. Caroline takes administrative lead for events, conferences, seminars and regional meetings. Prior to working at Youth Focus: North East, Caroline was a Senior Administrator at Newcastle University working closely with both the academics and a range of support staff.

When Caroline is not at work, she enjoys time with her family and friends, eating out, walking Archie her Goldendoodle, and generally just chilling.  Also, during her spare time, she is treasurer/secretary for a local youth football team, and supports them on cold soggy Sunday mornings.
