Laura Hillier

Senior Programme Officer


Laura joined Depaul International as Senior Programme Officer in December 2022. The role involves supporting Depaul subsidiaries on programme quality – key focus areas include safeguarding, data/impact, and finding opportunities to foster best practice and collaboration across the Depaul Group.  

Prior to that, Laura worked with Depaul UK for 3 years, in a national role which focused on the quality of community hosting programmes for young people experiencing homelessness (Nightstop and Supported Lodgings). Going further back, Laura has also worked in educational publishing, mental health research and as a support worker with a range of client groups. She also volunteered with local women’s charities for several years. Laura has a BSc in Psychology, an MRes in Health & Wellbeing and an MPhil in Health Research. 

Outside of work, Laura loves running, cooking and baking for friends and family – and mostly, chilling out with her cat!
