Pat McArdle Chief Executive Officer Pat has been passionately working to tackle homelessness in the UK and Ireland for over 25 years. Prior to joining Mayday in 2011, Pat worked for organisations including HARP, Cork Simon Community, Foyer Federation and YWCA England & Wales where she managed and developed a range of homelessness services, day centres, wet provision for drinkers, supported accommodation and hostels. Her passions and specialisms include drug and alcohol support, mental health, youth homelessness and working with women. Mayday is just full of people who put their heart and soul into making a difference. I love the dynamic pace, the creativity, the not-afraid-to-challenge, the passion and drive but above all, the solidarity with people going through tough times.
