Meet our Community Network Coordinators

Jade Flynn and Gemma May are our new Community Network Coordinators.

Community Network Coordinators work closely with the people we support to learn what activities they enjoy doing, and what activities they would like to try and find opportunities for them to join in with these activities in their local communities.

When there is no existing activity group within the local community, Jade and Gemma will support people to set up their own, so that everyone has access to

the activities they love. These activity groups help the people we support to build connections with their local communities and relationships with people who share

similar interests, leading them to live fulfilled, happy lives with a great network of people to share it with.

 

Jade and Gemma work with volunteers who help to get the groups up and running. You can find more about our volunteer opportunities at this link. 

 

Learn more about one of Jade’s projects

Jade Flynn is the Community Network Coordinator for south west Wales. Jade is currently working together with staff and people we support at Park Road in Swansea to turn their garden in to a communal space that people we support in other locations can use and enjoy.

So far Jade has secured donations from Asda and Tesco, which they will use to make the garden look welcoming, and create an outside cinema area for people to sit and relax in. Once complete, the community garden will be a great place for people to meet new friends, and build on existing relationships.

Jade is also looking for volunteers to join her at Maesteg Welfare park allotment. Watch her video to find out more:

 

Learn more about one of Gemma’s projects

Gemma May is the Community Network Coordinator for south east Wales. Gemma has worked with volunteers to re-establish a successful social and wellbeing walking group for people we support and other community members.

The group, which will now be led by volunteers, meet at Victoria Park in Cardiff every Friday at 11:30am. The walking route is accessible, and allows people to meet and make friends, improve their wellbeing, and get some light exercise. The group often end the walk with a pub lunch, where they can continue their conversations and get to know each other even more.

Find out more about the walking group in Gemma’s video:
