Orla joined Action Tutoring in December 2020 as Programme Coordinator for Birmingham.
She is a recent Social Policy graduate from the University of Birmingham and has interned at several charities which aim to tackle social disadvantage.
Orla is excited to be part of a team which tackles educational inequality and believes that every young person should have an equal chance of receiving a good education. Her experiences prior to Action Tutoring have provided her with an insight on how education is key to closing the gap and overcoming socio-economic barriers later in life.
Outside of work, Orla volunteers for Girlguiding UK, giving her first-hand understanding of the benefits volunteering can have on a community. She is a self-confessed chocoholic who justifies chocolate through yoga and running!
