Say hello to Angela

Hi everyone, my name is Angela and I’m so pleased to have joined the Sunnybank Trust.

I am an Advocacy Administrator.

I work with Annie as part of the Advocacy team, which means I get to work with a fantastic group of volunteers and also members of the community who need some extra help and support.

Advocacy means giving a voice and I have quite a loud one myself! I am often shouting for my two dogs, Ruby and Blue to stop chewing or being naughty.

I used to work for the NSPCC, a children’s charity, where I gave assemblies to children about keeping safe from abuse. That also involved using my voice to empower children.

Now I’m learning a lot about Learning Disabilities and how sometimes people can miss out on making choices and getting what they are entitled to just because they have difficulty communicating or get overlooked.

I enjoy being around people, so like everyone I have found being in lockdown hard. I am really looking forward to being able to safely meet up with all the lovely people who are part of Sunnybank.

Thank you to everyone who has made me feel very welcome and I feel very excited about all the great work we can all do together.
