She feels lucky that she gets to do this work with Inclusion Barnet.

Emma Hatfield joined Inclusion Barnet as a volunteer in 2011 before becoming the office coordinator.

Jonathan joined Inclusion Barnet in April 2018.
With a background in charity, not-for-profit communications and stakeholder engagement, his previous roles include Stakeholder Communications Manager at the Health and Care Professions Council and Communications Manager at the horticultural therapy charity, Thrive.
