Rachael originally joined LYC as a volunteer and became a Trustee in early 2017. Rachael brings to LYC several years of experience working in the health & social care sector and is currently employed by a large mental health organisation in their Quality Team. Rachael is an actively involved member of the team and is always enthusiastic about trying new activities and getting involved.
Having recovered from a long-term debilitating illness herself, Rachael is passionate about the physical and psychological benefits of moving, being active and focusing the mind on achieving goals.
Rachael’s central role on the Board is heading up communications; she is currently working with the Project Coordinator to develop our new website and expand our social media reach. She also has experience of catering for large numbers, a skill which is extremely useful when it comes to feeding hungry mouths on the LYC activity-based trips away from home.
