Leadership Team


Mike Mason


As Director, I oversee the day-to-day running of Lee Abbey London. What I enjoy most is helping people develop new life skills and get the most out of their experience of living and working here.


Flora Mason

I’m married to Mike and have been at Lee Abbey London for two years. I help with pastoral care and the administration of Lee Abbey.

I have a background in NHS Management and the Hospitality Industry.  I joined the team in 2016 and love working here.  I’ve spent the last 3 winters travelling abroad so I am missing the sun a little bit.
