Jonathan Cookson - Community Development Worker
After studying for a degree in community education I began my career working in communities, ranging from young offenders to young children and families. I started working for MESMAC in 2006 and immediately loved the challenge and privilege of working with both LGBT communities and HIV+ communities. I feel lucky to be able to support people to achieve positive changes in their lives around their sexual, mental and physical health and take great satisfaction from seeing individuals and groups grow stronger and more resilient. I really enjoy my role at MESMAC because no two days are ever the same and I get to meet such wonderful and interesting people. If you think we can help in anyway please get in touch, we look forward to meeting you!
