Charlotte Keen

Connector

 

What am I responsible for?

I work alongside disabled people and people who experience mental health challenges to connect them into our engagement activities at Barnwood.

 

What brings me here?

I have a background of working with families affected by addiction; with young people; and with women in the criminal justice system. As part of this I have worked in substance misuse services, probation services and inside a female prison.

 

What am I working on?

I am working on a pilot project to help Barnwood find the best way to engage with and hear the voices of people in the County with disabilities and mental health challenges. We want to know how people want to be heard and find out what works best.

 

What do I enjoy spending time doing for my own wellbeing?

Meditation and yoga help me with my wellbeing, as does a good talk with a close friend. I also love reading, going to the theatre or a live music event, going out in nature, eating good food, and laughter with friends and family. (She/her)
