What am I responsible for?
I am responsible for leading on research projects looking at issues affecting disabled people and people with mental health challenges in Gloucestershire.
What brings me here?
I started my career supporting children and young people with Special Educational Needs in a variety of settings before joining Barnwood Trust in 2016. In addition to my degree in Education Studies, I recently completed a Masters in Inclusion and Special Educational Needs.
What am I working on?
I am currently exploring the response to the pandemic by Gloucestershire communities. In this project we are considering: the learning from the past 12 months; how we, and other funders, might support communities to be more resilient; and how disabled people and people with mental health challenges can contribute to these communities.
What do I enjoy spending time doing for my own wellbeing?
I really enjoy going for long walks, particularly around the Forest of Dean. I am also a supporter of Gloucester Rugby (which is not great for my wellbeing at times!) and look forward to being able to get back to Kingsholm to watch them live! (He/him)
