Meet the team

Who are the One25 staff? We are the frontline workers changing lives; the office team holding us together and the fundraisers keeping us going. We could do none of this without our volunteers, our fantastic partners or you, our supporters.

Please see the Contact us page if you’re looking to get in touch.

Anna Smith

Chief Executive Officer

Formerly with Bristol domestic abuse charity Survive and London-based Advance Charity, Anna joined One25 as CEO in 2017.

“Trauma affects and shapes the lives of all the women One25 works with. Our relentless hope is that love and professional support can help them to make brave choices on their journeys to freedom.

Our 215 volunteers and 40-strong staff team are wholly committed to these women’s futures, to One25’s vision and values. We are so proud of all the women achieve.”

Operations Manager

Jenny comes to One25 with over 10 years’ prior experience working in Bristol with people in housing crisis. She works closely with the CEO to implement strategic plans and overall management of One25. Jenny is also One25’s designated safeguarding lead.

“Every single interaction we have with a woman is important. Each relationship we build considers each woman’s experience. It means we are flexible, do not judge, we see her strengths, try to understand her behaviours. We work with and around her. We truly listen.”

Amy Sutcliffe

Fundraising and Communications Manager

Amy leads on all our fundraising, connecting supporters to the women we help and ensuring that we’re still here for the women tomorrow, the day after, and the day after that.

“Women’s voices must be heard, their disadvantages understood and provided for. So we input into national research, present to strategic groups, advocate to other services and work with media and supporters to highlight their hidden needs. We fight to make sure they’re not overlooked.”
