Catherine Collis

Catherine is Director of Housing at Mayday Trust. Catherine’s passion for working with those going through tough times began over 26 years ago working with women and children affected by domestic abuse.

Prior to joining Mayday in 2019, Catherine worked for Women’s Aid for sixteen years in Wales and the West Midlands and then moved to a housing association where she managed Foyers and services for young people affected by homelessness in Herefordshire, before moving across to develop and establish a large new build hostel as well as having responsibility for developing improved tenancy sustainment services, older persons schemes and security across tower blocks in Coventry.  Her passions and specialisms include young people and working with women.

Mayday is about more than having a mission, it’s about being brave and being part of a movement of people who recognise that the current systems don’t work and that if we just work with people as people then we can create a new narrative.
