Celine Sinclair profile




Chief Executive
The Yard

Celine Sinclair is at the forefront of The Yard’s growth and development as a whole family support service. 2017 income was up 8.5% on the previous year and overall social return on investment 2016–17 was valued at over £20 for every £1 spent. For every £1 invested by statutory services, The Yard achieved a financial saving of over £12. Low staff turnover and high employee and volunteer engagement are testament to Celine’s leadership.





The Yard offers disabled children and young people, and their siblings, the chance to experience creative, adventurous indoor and outdoor play in a well supported environment. It is a unique, safe space where children and young people experience truly inclusive play.
