Feriel

I am a Wellbeing Support Officer and recently became involved with the HCNS Waiting Well Project as an Admin Officer.

Over the years I have developed the skills to support people from different background, beliefs and values and give them the support they need with respect and take any concern they might have forward.

I am very grateful to be part of a wonderful team.

 
Georgina

Bore da, Helo Pawb all. My name is Georgina-Kate but I am better known as "Georgy.” Before you say spelling errors, Bore da, Helo Pawb is Welsh for hello, my home sweet home!

I am one of the longest serving team members in the wonderful Community Wellbeing Team.  

I am a club facilitator providing a warm and welcoming environment for all our members and I am responsible for the wellbeing of all those who attend. I organise speakers to come into our clubs to give informative and health talks. I also coordinate activities and I am a qualified chair-based exercise instructor.

The things I enjoy most about my work in the Community Wellbeing Team is helping, supporting and enabling people to get the most out of life and having fun whilst doing it. I have enjoyed every moment working here, I have made some amazing friends and put a smile on a lot of people's faces.

My aim in life is to grow old disgracefully 😉. Chi iechyd da a hwyl fawr!

 
Jo

Hi all, I am Jo. Born and bred in Watford I grew up on the Holywell estate literally across the road from the Holywell Community Centre.

I began working for W3RT six years ago and have spent the last two years within the Community Wellbeing Team. I enjoy my job immensely, in particular facilitating at my clubs in the Barn and Halsey. I relish interacting with our members as I watch them make friends, laugh, and have fun. Clubs are such an important part of our members health and mental wellbeing.

I am part of a great team with supportive managers. My role is diverse and varied and there is never a dull moment.

In my personal time I enjoy going into London for ice cream at silly times at night with my friends. I like to relax at home hanging out with my cats Kizzy and Tyson. I have fun knitting, crafting, and baking.

My motto is ‘Enjoy every day, as the next day is never guaranteed’.

 
Louise

Hello, my name is Louise. I have worked with W3RT for around a year, I started as a KickStarter back in May 2021 for the Community Wellbeing Team. I gained a wealth of experience in those 6 months. I was then able to utilise this experience when I was accepted as a fulltime team member of the Community Wellbeing Team. I now design all marketing materials, lead on our Getting Together yearly events and most recently started as a Waiting Well Volunteer Co-ordinator.

I love being able to make a positive impact on people’s lives through this job role and feel very grateful to be a part of such a supportive team.

 
Naida

I started working for W3RT in August 2021 as a Wellbeing Support Officer.

It’s been an amazing experience, from joining the team while we were still working in Covid response to now transitioning into the Community Wellbeing Team and getting involved with all the great work that our team are a part of.

I am facilitator of the new Getting Together Meet & Greet club; this is the highlight of my week. It gives me real pleasure to see that the members are so happy to come back to their club and meet their friends. I love seeing their smiling faces, having a natter, laughing, joking and having fun over a cup of tea and a biscuit.

I am also part of the small team working on the NHS Waiting Well Project as a Data & Outcomes Officer.

I have learnt so much in such a short amount of time and am so grateful for having such a supportive team to work with.

In my free time I love nothing more than being granny to my beautiful granddaughter who is going to be one this month.

 
Louise

I have been working for W3RT for 4 years after coming from a senior carer background. I felt that it was time for change in direction and wanted to focus on older people out in the community and enable them to get the best out of life.

I am a qualified chair based exercise instructor and love to see our members having fun and enjoying the health and fitness benefits of our groups. Our groups are like one big family and to me family is everything.
