SNAP Cymru Volunteer’s storiesIn recognition of the outstanding work, time and effort that volunteers contribute to SNAP Cymru, we will be featuring a post about a different volunteer in the organisation, each week here on our Facebook page.In recognition of the outstanding contribution as a volunteer, this week, we are pleased to introduce Lindsay Brewis, who has been supporting SNAP Cymru for 30 years. This amazing woman became a volunteer on the National Executive Committee in 1996 and is currently the Vice Chair of the NEC and an active parental supporterBeing a teacher and parent gave Lindsay a unique perspective and gave the parents confidence in what the LA was saying to them. Lindsay highlighted that there are everyday moments when a parent comes up to you and says “My child is still doing well because of Snap Cymru”.On a more personal level, Lindsay has gained much from volunteering with SNAP Cymru – in particular, working with a team of skilled individuals who all share a passion for ensuring children are given the opportunity to reach their potential. Her work as a teacher gave a school and county perspective as did her work with Scope as Head of their Early Years team across England. Lindsay has also been an Advisory Teacher, all expertise which she brings to her work with SNAP Cymru.Lindsay has given hundreds of hours of unpaid work and provided her extensive experience as a SEN teacher. She has provided training and written extensively, using her communication abilities at all levels. Lindsay is able to identify with parents, as her own children have disabilities. For that reason, she can naturally offer empathy, yet she can also empathise with teachers and the LA. In Lindsay’s view, having that duel perspective is very helpful particularly when playing a representative role or policy role on behalf of SNAP Cymru.Lindsey’s dedication, loyalty and passionate involvement in the organisation seem limitless. Her unbounded energy, transfers across the board; sharing her experiences and positively affecting people’s lives for the betterment of many children and families.SNAP Cymru would like to take this opportunity to express their appreciation and gratitude to Lindsay Brewis for her wonderful service, hard work and commitment over the years. Thank you for being such a fantastic volunteer.If any of you would be interested in volunteering with SNAP Cymru please see other stories, volunteer roles and our application form on our website >http://www.snapcymru.org/get-involved/31 9 8
