Bethan started her Home-Start journey with the Denbighshire scheme back in 2013, before becoming an employee of Home-Start Cymru six years later.
She joined Denbighshire Home-Start as a Family Organiser, and is now the Locality Manager for the North and Powys, covering the counties of Anglesey, Denbighshire and the aforementioned Powys. She leads a team of coordinators as well as managing a caseload of families. She enjoys building relationships with our volunteers, our referrers, and the different networking groups she attends. Bethan also takes advantage of all opportunities for volunteer recruitment.
Prior to joining Home-Start Cymru, Bethan worked as a teacher both home and abroad for a few years, before becoming an Educationalist for the Fire Service. Working with children in an educational setting, Bethan saw the effect a child’s home life had on their participation in class. When the opportunity came for her to be able to join Home-Start she jumped at the chance, and feels very privileged to have been allowed into so many families’ lives to support them during their difficult times.
As a person who likes to keep busy when not at work, she volunteers for a few organisations, enjoys new challenges, and delights in being in the company of family and friends
