Centre Director- Kevin Flanagan

At St Antony's Centre we have an experienced and professional team who assist in delivering and developing the Centre's projects.

The team is headed by the Centre's founder and Director Kevin Flanagan. With over 30 years experience in community and faith groups and a similar period spent working with Trade Unions, Kevin provides leadership and strategic development of services including forging links and partnerships with funding bodies, providers, public and private sector agencies.

Contracts Manager, Paul Callaghan, has over 18 years experience of project and contract development as well as management of a range of community based learning projects. Paul is responsible for the development of new contracted learning provision, negotiation of learning outcomes and targets and supporting the training team to deliver services in line with quality standards and contractual requirements.

Sarah Doherty is PA is the Centre Director and assists with daily and time management, scheduling meetings, note taking and dealing with correspondence.

Diane Williams is our Centre Secretary and provides administrative support across the whole range of Centre activities. Diane is also responsible for the conference and hire facilities we have at the centre and takes charge of all bookings and enquiries. 

The Training Team is led by Peter Kneebone, our Training Manager. Peter's experience has proven to be a valuable asset particularly in the development, delivery and quality assurance of training programmes across the North West. Senior Trainer, Dorothy Kneen has worked at the Centre since 2001 and currently teaches a range of accredited IT courses. Margaret Seger and Bev Taylor are our Community Tutors, delivering ICT and Functional Skills Maths and English respectively across the region.

The Reach Out team is led by Dave Flanagan, supported by Joanne Phillips, Lisa Mullan and Bernadette Fearn. As a team they reach out to ULRs, develop our community learning hubs and promote lifelong learning. 

Our Spirituality Project is a Catholic founded project but it is open to people of all or no faith and this is led by Colette Burke.  

Aidan Neary, Margaret Farrell and Stephen Bowe make up the Centre Maintenance Team and between them they help to keep the place looking ship shape.

We are also lucky to be able to call on the support of heritage volunteers. Helen Lentin helps out with archiving the array of heritage donations to the centre as well as assisting with general admin work and welcoming Centre visitors.
