Peter Bazeley
ILEAP CEO

Hi, my name is Peter and I worked with Parents and Professionals to help to set up the ILEAP Charity back in 2000. I have the privilege of managing all the work behind the scenes, making sure everything runs according to plan and that we have enough great staff, volunteers and funds to deliver safe, affordable and user-led activities. 

 My passion is to encourage and support our members, staff and volunteers so that they can reach their full potential, having as much fun as possible along the way! 

 Hope to see you at one of our sessions soon!

Children's coordinator  Hi, my name is Charlie P, I have been working for ILEAP since February 2018. Knowing that I’m supporting individuals fulfil their hobbies and interests, makes me feel I’m making a difference, which inspires me to go the extra mile. I have a MASSIVE obsession with my cockapoo dog called Alfie and you’ll most probably get bored of seeing the 100s of pictures I have of him. I apologise in advance! Look forward to enjoying sessions with you all!

Hi, my name is Vanessa, I have been working for ILEAP since 2014. I enjoy it because it makes me happy! The members and parents are so wonderful and friendly. Although I have another full time job as a school business manager; I could never step away from ILEAP. I feel invested in the members’ lives and I have enjoyed seeing them grow over the years. Plus, we have SO much fun! My husband often shakes his head, laughing when I say I’m going to ‘work’ bowling, to an attraction, or swimming. In my spare time, I enjoy reading a good book, swimming, cooking and visiting new places! I have 2 cats and 2 guinea pigs, and given half a chance I’d adopt enough animals to open a zoo!!

I enjoy going for long walks and drives (as you can tell by my picture, I love cars!)

Jess
Staff
Hi, my name is Jess! I started working with ILEAP in 2017 as a volunteer as part of my Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award.
ILEAP has always been a part of my family as my parents both worked for the charity when it was first created, and so it only seemed right for me to follow in their footsteps.
I enjoy helping members get the most out of the sessions that they attend as well as getting to know them.
I have always loved drama and acting and have been in several shows and musicals.
I also love to sing opera and musical theatre.
When I’m not on a stage, I am making jewellery, baking or snuggling with my cats Charlie and Lola.
I look forward to seeing you at an ILEAP session soon!
