Our Team

Vanessa Haworth

Head of New Project Development

Vanessa joined OnSide in February 2022. She now leads ‘live’ Youth Zone projects nationally, taking them from the point of council approval up to pre-opening.  While design & build are being developed in parallel, Vanessa establishes governance structures for the new Youth Zone charities, builds strategic partnerships and ensures all key project milestones are met along the way.

With 20 years’ experience in arts-led regeneration, social housing and the charity sector, Vanessa has always been interested in building momentum and bringing new ideas to life. Prior to joining OnSide, she headed up Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity taking the organisation from start-up phase to become a fully audited/established charity. Her passion for young people stems from a strong belief in early intervention and prevention. What we deliver working with young people today really does change the future.

Vanessa was a member of the Clore Social Leadership 2019/20 cohort, a national programme developing leaders with a social purpose so that they can transform their communities, organisations, and the world around them.
