About Sonia Roberts
Having spent 20 years at the start of her career in the fashion industry in a number of roles, Sonia made the decision to move in to the voluntary sector. She has since spent the last 12 years as Charity Manager at Landau, an organisation focused on providing those with learning disabilities or long-term health issues, the long-term unemployed and young people, with the skills and support they need to find sustainable employment. During her time in this role she has developed the charity from a £200k to £1m turnover business and increased its geographical reach across the region.
She also holds the Chair roles at both Shropshire Providers Consortium and Shropshire Disability Network.
