Meet the Team
Our first manager, Sandra Watt, has been in post now for over four years. Sandra has been working over this time to develop new projects and partnerships in Sunderland to assist with the general well being of all asylum seekers and refugees in Sunderland and develop their sense of belonging and inclusion.
She continues to network and be an advocate for the asylum seeker and refugee community in Sunderland.
FODI is run by a group of dedicated volunteers who give up their free time to run the Drop-In and its many associated activities. Our volunteers are a diverse mixture of people from both the local and asylum seeker and refugee community.
Our management committee consists of:
Stephen Newman: Chairperson
Felicity Livsey: Treasurer
Zara Juma: Secretary
Jane Nikolarakis: Committee member
Abraham Eiluorior: Committee member
Zeinab Cummings: Committee member
Mali Saha: Committee member
Fanni Ngambi : Committee member
We also have many other volunteers to whom we are indebted for their help and commitment to FODI .
