CDA is managed and staffed by volunteers, who are all members of Reigate & Redhill Community Church.
There are 4 debt advisors and 1 administrator. We work in teams of 2 for each client and each team is made up of a man and a woman.
We come from a variety of backgrounds and have different careers and interests. Here is a short description of us:
Mike is an IT specialist, married with 2 children. He rides his bike everywhere and so is very fit and loves curry nights.
Julie is married with 3 children. She works part time as an accountant and enjoys her garden and cooking!
Laura is a full time mum, married with 3 children. She is a qualified accountant and loves music!
Sarah helps with the administration for CDA and is a teacher. She is married with 2 children.
Graham is a qualified actuary. He's married with one child and is into playing with her, reading, cycling and watching Arsenal
