Hi I am Jo, the Volunteering Officer here at VCS Cymru for the Pave the Way Project. I have spent the last 12 years working in the third sector, prior to that many years in the private sector. In the last few years I have worked on two projects that have supported people out of the criminal justice system. I am passionate about challenging social injustice and discrimination.
The amazing projects that I have had opportunities to work on have enabled me to focus my energies and experience on giving support to people who have lived experience of mental ill health. Which is what led me to VCS Cymru and Pave the Way.
I am a mother, a feminist and a fighter (words not weapons….)
