Toni Paxford

Toni is a youth and community worker. She rose to prominence in the town in 2017 when she launched Paige’s Project, a social action group for 11-25-year-olds with ‘invisible’ illnesses.

She went on to become a member of the Rotherham Youth Cabinet and the UK’s Youth Parliament and has added her expertise to projects with Rotherham Council, church organisations and the NHS Youth Forum.

Toni has always been fascinated by Wentworth Woodhouse and aims to encourage other young people to discover and support it and help.
