Porchlight JET Team

“Zena has been terrific with our service users. Her passion for reading ,and the difference it can make in people’s lives, really shines through all she does. Allied to her caring and empowering approach makes for a winning combination in getting vulnerable people to engage with reading. Her organisational skills are a bonus and our sessions have been so good throughout her involvement. I can’t sing her praises enough”.

“Zena has been working with families that had suffered Domestic abuse, mums and Zena reading short stories in a comfortable environment encouraging them to read themselves at home. During the school holidays the children were invited along for a reading session, reading ‘Every Bunny Dance’ and colouring in bunny ears – a great time had by all.”
