Angie Kalou

2018 Fellow

Angie is a co-founder of Lemonade, a social enterprise bridging the gap between the community and the clinical world. They support young people on waiting lists for mental health services.

Angie was a 2018 Fellow. For her frontline phase, she was placed at the Bromley-by-Bow Centre, an innovative community organisation in East London. She delivered a consultancy project for Settle, an award-winning social enterprise that designs and delivers high impact support services to vulnerable young people.

Before Year Here, she engaged in content writing and other roles in the travel industry. This inspired her to travel widely, during which time she built an appetite for understanding the impact of varying social systems.

Angie has since begun blogging about Britain’s social issues and continues to volunteer at NCT Enfield as Online Magazine Editor. This position involves building an inclusive and informed community of parents, and campaigning for better postnatal mental health support. She has also enjoyed shadowing Haringey Council’s housing team and fundraising for National Deaf Children’s Society.
