With this experience, Abbi knows the Trust inside out and has gained a vast amount of knowledge around Health and Wellbeing as well as other departments including Sport participation, NCS, and Inclusion. Abbi helps promote general health and wellbeing by delivering fun and engaging sessions to the community.

Ryan has been working at the trust for a combination of 12 years gaining a wealth of knowledge during that time. He has a vast range of experience working with older adults delivering activities such as seated exercise and coffee mornings, activities for participants living with mental health issues, and healthy lifestyle programmes educating young participants on how to gain a healthier lifestyle and become more active.
