Emily Green is The Welcome Directory's Project Manager. Emily joins us having spent 9 years in the development and humanitarian sectors, supporting staff, partners and communities of different faiths overseas. She has experience leading a global team, project managing the logistics operations and building capacity for the geographical portfolios for which she was responsible at Tearfund. In response to the pandemic, this included procurement proposals and budgets with institutional donors.
Emily has served a local church-based homelessness project in a voluntary capacity and is passionate about positively impacting and engaging communities on issues of social justice. She is excited to lead a team that strives to mobilise faith communities to grow as agents of transformation for people leaving prison with faith.
On a personal note, Emily enjoys singing, cycling and baking anything sweet!

Malsore Isufi is The Welcome Directory’s Networking and Administrative Officer and a masters student currently taking a gap year from studying Crime Science at UCL. Malsore comes from a criminal justice background, having studied the subject in her undergraduate degree, it has given her some knowledge and understanding of issues prison leavers may face when reintegrating back to their communities.
She is excited to learn and work with like-minded individuals in a much-needed organisation and hopes to spread the word about why The Welcome Directory is vital for both prison leavers of faith and faith communities.
In her spare time, she enjoys writing poetry and reading – her current favourite book is Little Women.
The Welcome Directory is also supported by faithful volunteers who share our passion for supporting prison leavers beyond the prison gates, to whom we are so grateful. Should you be interested in exploring volunteer opportunities and joining us in our mission, we'd love to hear from you!
