I am an Equality and Diversity campaigner who has dedicated my life to helping people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities have a voice.
As the strategic equality and diversity lead at the National Training Federation for Wales (NTfW), I encourage and engage with people from BAME communities and those with disabilities. Our word is focused across Wales and promotes the opportunities afforded by apprenticeships.
I previously worked as a national diversity coordinator for Mind Cymru’s Time to Change Wales campaign. I'm Cardiff based and have spent nearly 30 years working in the public and community sector, championing disadvantaged groups.
A founding member of Black History Month Wales alongside late celebrated Cardiff headteacher, Betty Campbell, I have been named among the most influential African Caribbean and African Welsh people. In 2000 I was included in the Western Mail’s power list of 1,000 most influential people in Wales.
I am the lead consultant for our Equality Diversity and Inclusive Research Association project. With Sondra, we are working with experts in the field to develop a framework for inclusive research for our community.
I have worked with many grass roots organisations and a diverse range of community groups. One common challenge they all have is the lack of funding and resources to continue the work.
It is sad that many of these small charities and groups close because of this fact. And this has an impact on their communities, as many of the services they provide is not available from statutory organisations.
RareQoL is one of those organisations with very little funding to continue its work. My role is to write funding bids which will enable RareQoL to continue beyond 2022.
