Youth Steering Committee

Poppy
Barton

Born and bred in Liverpool, Poppy is the Youth Steering Committee’s resident Scouser, bringing her Beatles-esque charm and artistic chic to the team. Known for her exquisite fashion taste, you can spot Poppy from the crowd in her fluffy pink coat and telephone-shaped handbag. Having studied Social Anthropology at the University of Cambridge, Poppy loves reading people almost as much as she loves reading literature. 

Keen to promote access to education for all children, Poppy has worked with Project Access to mentor disadvantaged students on university applications and collaborated with Liverpool Safeguarding Children Partnership to encourage community and business leaders to engage with young people in decision-making. Additionally, Poppy has made the leap to move away from her comfort zone to take up the role of a primary school teacher in Qatar.
