Ruby Chandler

Assistant Project Worker

Pronouns: they/them

I am an Assistant Project Worker based in Barnsley and Sheffield. I work at the H.O.M.E hub, supporting the wellbeing programme and assisting with the facilitation of PRIDE @ HOME, a support group for LGBTQIA+ young people. In Sheffield, I work on the RUBIC² Project, within Schools and the local Community, to build cohesion and empower young people to be leaders in their local area.

My favourite thing about working at Chilypep is the supportive, kind, and passionate team, as well as the amazing young people and community members we work with. I am dedicated to making positive social change through arts-based practice and creating safe spaces for young people to thrive.

I enjoy playing board games with friends and long walks in green spaces. I like to wind down with a good TV show, or a book in hand, and love playing guitar or writing poetry when I’m feeling creative. 😊
