The Team


Peter Dacres

Your Skills/Experience:

I have been working at Somerville since April 2016 and have 20 years experience of working with children and young people.

As well as managing our amazing staff, I deliver a range of activities and workshops relating to issues young people may be facing and accredited courses such as the Duke of Edinburgh awards. I pride myself on working closely with our members of staff, young people, their parents/carers and the community so that they feel supported in order for us to provide an excellent service to everyone associated with The Somerville.

Why I like to work for SYPP:

One of my main reasons for wanting to work with children and young people is that I am extremely passionate about developing their skills, knowledge and experiences. I recognise that each person is unique and has the ability to fulfil their potential here at Somerville which provides a fun and safe space for this to be achieved.
I love having the opportunity to ‘give back’ to the community that I grew up in.
