MEET THE TRUSTEES
I became involved with Cwtch Together in 2015 after graduating from university with a degree in psychology and finding myself at a loss for what to do. Now the children and families that we work with are like my very own family and I look forward to seeing them and having fun every Saturday. In 2018 I received a certificate from the Understanding Disability Awards after being nominated by parents for the volunteer work I do at Cwtch Together.
I worked as a qualified nursery nurse for 18 years. In 2017 I completed my level 5 and decided it was time to give up my job to be at home for my son who has autism and other additional needs. I have 2 other children and am happily married. I joined the Cwtch team in 2017 and have made many new friends and memories since. I enjoy the time spent at Cwtch Together and look forward to meeting all the wonderful families who attend.
I am a duty manager in a local hotel and have a university degree in Film and Television Production. I have previously worked with YMCA Wales creating videos for their AGM's. Having a cousin with autism and seeing the great work they do for him and other children like him, I decided Cwtch Together was the ideal charity to associate myself with.
I’m a mum of 3, my eldest has severe complex needs. I struggled for years to find suitable activities that I could attend with my children. I wanted to get involved with Cwtch as it has been a lifeline for me. It’s like a home from home. All 3 of my children have made new friends at Cwtch and for me to be able to have a coffee and catch up with parents that understand is priceless.
I have been a nursery nurse for many years, enjoying my time with children of preschool and toddler age/ I have been a special needs coordinator, and a qualified early years practitioner for over 25 years. My hobbies include travelling, and spending time with my long time partner Andrew.
