Our Part Time Support
Finance and Facilities Officer
Ilaria joined Caxton in March 2021 as part of her uni placement and has loved Caxton since her start. She is now part of our part-time team. Supporting young people at Caxton inspired her to research and advocate for young people’s independence and personal identity. She is particularly interested in promoting young people with disabilities’ rights through relationships with their friends and families, and she is determined (one day) to bring the youth club culture back to Italy, where she is from!
