Undertaking positions such as housing officer, and being the head of the support and care unit for the London Borough of Brent, Lade has dealt with everyone from the homeless and less fortunate that she works tirelessly to help; up to the people in power who have a real say in the change of the borough and the city at large.

Through these interactions over the years she has seen a problem that has needed addressing, specifically in the Black and Minority Ethnic communities; and this problem is mental health. So she initiated the NOUS as a charitable organisation for grass roots community outreach to create awareness of mental health issues among the people of Brent and beyond.
