My background

My background is in social research, evaluation and policy development. I work for Arad Research, undertaking a range of projects for public sector organisations and charities.

In particular, I focus on education and skills, employment, communities and social inclusion, young people and families, and the Welsh language. In the past,

I have also worked on performance audit and sharing good practice across the public sector, as well as working and volunteering for various charities.

What I do

I am a Trustee, which means I, alongside other Trustees, am ultimately responsible for the management of Community Foundation Wales.

I help to develop the strategic direction of the Community Foundation, monitor progress and budgets, manage risks and act as an ambassador for the Community Foundation whenever possible.

In particular, I am a member of the grants committee where we provide strategic direction to the Community Foundation’s grant-making and make decisions on awarding grants.

Ask me about

How we support communities with good grant-making and how we are well-placed to help people give effectively to communities in Wales.

Why I love Wales

I have lived in Wales for most of my life and I love the strong sense of community that exists right across Wales.

I am also keen on hiking and Wales is a perfect place to discover striking landscapes – our national parks are excellent!

I am also a fluent Welsh speaker and I love how warm, friendly and beautiful the language sounds.
