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 co-producing a membership scheme to help Barnwood find the best way to hear the views of people in the County with disabilities and mental health challenges. We want to know what things are most affecting people and to create a network of voices.

 

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 going to the theatre or a live music event, going out in nature, eating good food, and laughter with friends and family. (She/her)
