 I have been Splash Programme coordinator since Apr 15.  Prior to that I managed the Salamander project for WFRS and prior to that I worked in Adult Social Care at Wiltshire Coucil. Working in a field that has such positive impacts on young people and their families is very satisfying and enjoyable.  Working with a diverse group of clients, partners and colleagues I continue to learn new things everyday and can pass my experiences on to others to continue supporting and helping those that need it the most.

I took up the role of Executive in November 2015. I understand and appreciate the amount of work undertaken by committees and wanted to help support that. 

Being involved with the forum is a fantastic opportunity to meet fellow organisations and build relationships and partnerships in order to meet our clients needs across the board.  I really value the forum as a platform to meet others, gather new info and also have a voice in the future of the services we provide.

I work Monday-Thursday 9:30-3:00, Friday 9:00-11:30

I have been working for 23 years  with children and families in the voluntary and statutory sector.  When the vacancy came up in December 2015, I joined the executive.  I believe that as a voluntary sector we have a lot to offer families, children & young people. The Forum offers the best networking opportunity

I work Monday-Friday 9:00-5:00
