“We have an opportunity to bring about change for everyone who is connected to and impacted by domiciliary care in the Colne Valley, across our communities.”
In the first of a series of short insights into our team members, we asked Veronika, one of our board directors, to tell us a bit about herself.
I think we have an opportunity to bring about change for everyone who is connected to and impacted by domiciliary care in the Colne Valley, across our communities. And while we are still at the beginning of our journey, I hope for change which will be transformational and long-lasting.
I live in Slaithwaite and have been involved in the local community life for several years in a few ways – working with organisations such as local hospice, community-based projects supporting refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants and The Welcome Centre – local food bank provider. I currently work for WomenCentre – a local women-only charity offering mental health and wellbeing support.
“It’s really exciting to witness and be able to facilitate the co-operation that is emerging and coming together.”
Within CCCV, apart from being a board member, I am also supporting our work on the Sharing Care project. We’ve been funded by Power to Change to gather our learning, share it widely and bring others, who are already doing great work in the sector and who are interested in being part of the movement for change, together. It’s really exciting to witness and be able to facilitate the co-operation that is emerging and coming together.
I am bringing my experience and skills and as a trainer and advisor, facilitator, campaigner, advocate, data analyst & visualiser and feminist.
I’m a plant enthusiast with an ever-growing collection of African violets and random house plants I don’t know names of but like how they look and smell; and I grow veggies & flowers outside too. I do like a good book & film, enjoy hiking as well as all sorts of crafting.
