Our Team

Alison Humphreys

Project Co-ordinator / Trustee

I have over 20 years experience as a Physio working mainly with older people and 5 years ago trained as a Counsellor at Keele University. I have also worked supporting people with Dementia and their carers.

All this inspired the start of Connect For Life – I am passionate about encouraging people, especially those affected by dementia or memory loss, to continue to enjoy life, have opportunities to socialise, have fun and be listened to.

Volunteering is at the very core of being himan, no one has got through life without someone else to help. The service users at Connect for Life will touch my heart for the rest of my life.

Julia Thomas

Volunteer

I saw that Connect for Life wanted some help with lunches and am fortunate enough to have time on Wednesday midday. I have been helping deliver, serve and wash up for a few months now and really enjoy talking to the clients and supporting the professionals. It is a privilege to be involved.

I love helping at Connect for Life as I enjoy spending time with the service users and hearing all their interesting stories. I also enjoy being part of the volunteer team!

Frances Arnall

Chair of the trustees

I have 30 years experience as a Physiotherapist, with various roles. I have been involved with research involving people with memory difficulties.  I have also been involved in voluntary sector organisations which support families and carers.

I wholeheartedly agree with the Christian ethos of Connect for Life and its passion to improve the lives of people with memory difficulties, their carers and wider family.

Keith

Lewis

Trustee

I have experienced the effect of dementia as my mother lived with it for many years. This is motivation to help support Connect For Life.

Sybil Williamson

Volunteer

I come from a nursing background and have worked in the charity sector for many years. I enjoy every minute of volunteering and being part of the Connect for Life team. The team genuinely care here and are so supportive and dedicated to the service users . No two days are the same. Seeing the attendees forming new friendships, having fun, joining in activities, even in some small way, is so rewarding. There is always a buzz of cheerfulness, laughter and accomplishment within the group, which is very infectious. I feel very privileged to be part of this wonderful supportive service.

Tudor Humphreys

Trust Fundraiser

I've worked in Charity Sector for 33 years developing front line services. I have watched the Connect For Life Team using their gifts and talents to support vulnerable people and it's a pleasure to 'volunteer' looking for funding to develop the work.

I like to help out the guys at Connect For Life in any way I can. With currently studying to be a Social Worker, supporting vulnerable people will be eventually my career. So what a better place to start than at Connect For Life.
