Lionel Fonjock is a qualified Social Worker and has worked in the leaving and after care team since 2005.

Lionel is in regular contact with both staff and young people at FEVACA and prioritises visits to all the projects, as well as reviews of the community service client’s service packages. More recently Lionel has created the FEVACA Foundation, a charity that will support vulnerable young people and care leavers in the UK as they move into adulthood.
