What is your day job?

Disability Sports Wales Development Officer for Ceredigion

 

Why did you get involved with (disability) sport?

I have worked for Disability Sport Wales for the past 8 years, I have been involved in delivering, providing advice, mentoring and developing athletes and volunteers and more recently supporting clubs and the sports development team through insport.

 

How long have you been a tutor for DSW?

6 years

 

Why did you become a DSW tutor?

To be able to provide advice and guidance to people who are interested in disability sport and who would like to be more inclusive in their delivery. Also to be able to share what I have learnt in the 9 years I have been involved with disability sport and to continue to learn from other people who attend the courses.

I am approachable and want to be able to support people as much as I can to deliver activities to disabled people effectively and comfortably. Whether you’re new to disability sport, at school age, a club coach, teacher or work for sport development and NGB’s I am happy to try and provide the information you need.

 

What are the good things about tutoring the UK DIT workshops?

Being able to support people to include disabled people into physical activity and sport and making a difference to potential participant’s experience of physical activity and sport. Sharing what you have learnt- You never stop learning new things!

 

Give us one interesting fact about yourself:

I am a mother of 2 young children who loves to spend time outdoors keeping healthy and active.
