Hannah has been a member of the team at MAWWFRS since 2014. Since graduating with a BA Hons Youth & Community Education, from the University of Wales Institute Cardiff in 2011, she has gone on to work at the Cardiff Youth Inclusion Support Panel, working with young people who are at risk of offending or already offending, before gaining employment and valuable experience as a Learning Support Assistant at Ysgol Dyffryn Taf, Whitland where she also worked at a local youth club in the evenings.
“Since launching Crimes and Consequences, the project has successfully reached over 2,000 young people, throughout mid and west Wales, each year. The team have worked hard, from getting the project up and running, to developing an established youth project within the Service.
I have thoroughly relished working as part of the Crimes and Consequences team for the past two and a half years. I really enjoy my job, as I am amongst colleagues who are just as passionate as me when working with young people. We do encounter challenging behaviour on a daily basis, due to the nature of our target audience, however, knowing that we are making a difference to young people’s lives is very rewarding.
I was immensely proud of the team and our hard work when we were recognised for the achievements of the Crime and Consequences and Dawns Glaw initiatives at the 2016 Celebrating Success Awards.
I am very excited to see what the future holds for the Specialist Youth Team, working together to make a positive change with Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service. #TheATeam”
