Putting Young People First

Meet the Team

Charlotte Chiweshe

Development Worker

Hi, my name is Charlotte and I am the Full Time Development Worker at The Pearson Centre. I studied Youth and Community Work with Practical Theology at University. I have a desire to see young people reach their potential, to push themselves beyond their limits and embrace their every day. Many young people desire fun, and being a youth worker basically means I get to carry that on into my adult life!! Outside of The Centre you would probably find me at Community Church Nottingham or in one of the local restaurants as my other passions are Jesus and having someone else cook for me!

Jennifer Carter

Part Time Development Worker/Administrator

Hi, my name is Jennifer and I am the Part Time Development Worker/Administrator at The Pearson Centre. I love working with the community and young people of Beeston. There is a lot of potential in Beeston for young people and I like helping and seeing that develop. I have a degree in Textile Design and enjoy anything creative. I also enjoy baking and trying out new recipes. Outside of work I like going to the local coffee shops and also visiting the Peak District.
