Emma Brech

Head of Schools and Communities at Renaisi

London, United Kingdom

About Me

I came to Renaisi in 2013 to develop our Bilingual Adviser Service: supporting the team, redesigning the service and strengthening our offer to schools and communities. My role has since evolved to focus on the strategic and business development aspects of the service, retaining our core ethos around cross-cultural community development.

My experience

Following my own experience of migration as a child, I am drawn to social sector projects which combine language, culture and education.  With a particular interest in marginalised, refugee and migrant communities, I have worked in higher education, schools and the charity sector to promote therapeutic and user-led solutions to integration. This included designing and developing the Women’s Project@LRMN, a successful holistic counselling and social work advocacy service for asylum-seeking women in SE London.

My interests

With a particular focus on human rights and equalities,  I’m interested in how we work together creatively and empathically to achieve change; because of this, working within a diverse team on community cohesion is a real privilege.  Alongside my work with Renaisi, I run my own counselling practice for women, and enjoy the cross-over between counselling approaches and social justice work.
