Our small, dedicated staff team have a broad range of experience and knowledge to support you in delivering enhanced play opportunities for children.
I have held an active interest in Out of School clubs through my own children. In 2002 I became a member of a management committee to create childcare opportunties locally. I have worked within the administration and financial field for over twenty years. Since joining LPN in 2004 my knowledge, experience and interest has grown immensely, providing an opportunity for development into a management role recently.
I have held the General Manager post for over two years, I am operationally responsible for running the organisation, providing support to staff and reporting directly to the Trustee Board.

Administrator – Cathie O’Brien
I joined LPN in 2004 after working for Leeds City Council since leaving school. My roles have always been administrative – still my main role at LPN but with plenty of variety thrown in! I’ve had opportunity to work with many of our projects and services over the years and look forward to the challenges of the future.
Information Worker – Cheryl Woods
My name is Cheryl Woods and I would like to introduce myself as the Information Worker for Leeds Play Network. I have worked in the out of school sector for 16 years progressing from a play assistant to running two out of school clubs as my own business. I understand that to provide a good service playworkers need to be well informed about issues that affect the sector. Therefore my role is to ensure that they are kept up to date with regular information to meet their needs.
