DOMINY ROE

TransformShoreditch Director

Dominy feels she is living out her purpose using her lived experience in the care system and of overcoming a range of childhood trauma - abuse in all forms!
 

She is breaking cycles of generational trauma and dysfunction and is passionate about taking other women, and girls, from similar backgrounds with her! She is convicted that these challenges can give us an advantage - inspiring incredible character and strength in us - IF we are courageous enough to heal from them.

After working with children, young people and their families for over ten years in a range of charity and community organisations she co-founded TransformUK. The vision for TransformUK came from our amazing CEO and is to demonstrate love in some of our poorest communities. Not just financially poor but where there is a lack of love, health, wealth and any other barriers that lead us to not live out all the light inside of us!

 Dominy has completed a research project with the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust in Florida, Virginia and NYC. It was whilst doing this that her love of music - particularly hip hop (getting to see Mos Def perform with NYC’s symphony orchestra helped this!) - was cemented and WordFORWARD was birthed! Using lyrics and beats to help engage our young people witj their emotions and propel them forward is a no brainer! We couldn’t be happier that the Mayor of London agrees and this project was recently awarded Young Londoners funding!

Dominy feels blessed to work with some of the most incredible people and is on a mission to break generational cycles of dysfunction and raise up incredible mums and dads who raise up even more incredible mums and dads!
