Meet The Team

Embrace is governed by a board of trustees who meet a minimum of 4 times a year. The Project Manager oversees the day to day running of Embrace and is accountable to the Director.

Director – Rachel de Kam.

Project Manager – Karissa Coley.

When Karissa was just 15, she felt that God was calling her to work with women involved in prostitution. This passion led her to study Applied Community and Social Studies at Coventry University, where she had the opportunity to research prostitution, along with other social issues. She enjoys reading, drinking tea and is married to Sam. Karissa is passionate about local mission and encouraging individuals to get involved with their community. Karissa is currently on maternity leave with her first child.
