Sophie Thompson, Work Coach

As a work coach, Sophie works with trainees on the programme, both delivering group sessions and giving one to one support on placement. After graduating in Mathematics with Education Studies at Liverpool John Moores University, Sophie initially began delivering programmes for Visually Impaired children around Merseyside whilst tutoring mathematics. In her spare time, she loves to write music, keep fit and go to gigs.

“The plan to open Strawberry Field to the public for the first time - so people can see a unique exhibition about the home, how and why the song was written by John, and allow visitors to explore the grounds as John did as a child - is very exciting.”
