Sacha Bedding


Chair of the Board

Sacha leads the charity The Wharton Trust, a social action hub in the Dyke House area of Hartlepool.  Dyke House is one of the top 2% of deprived wards in the UK.  The charity is based at a community and resource centre called The Annexe, which has become a centre for resident-led regeneration.

 Sacha’s work includes addressing barriers to accessing employment and training opportunites and how to counter the accompanying issues that arise when living in area of deprivation –  When I arrived we had a lot of people doing things for other people. One, it’s unsustainable, and two, it gives people no sense of ownership over their own lives”.
