Project Advisor – Gareth Gareth lives with his wife and two dogs. He enjoys walking the dogs – who are both rescued and both amazing. One in four of us have mental health needs and he’d really like to see people access community based resources.
Referral Coordinator – Moira Moira has a background of working with vulnerable groups and their carers whose mental health has suffered at points in their lives.  She enjoys singing in her spare time and is a member of a community choir in Taunton.  She also enjoys the outdoors and is often stomping up on the Quantocks with her family.  Both activities have a positive impact on her wellbeing.

Jem Jem grew up in Kent but loves Somerset.  In the summer, if he’s not at a music festival, he might be cycling or camping.  He’s also a lazy gardener.
Anna - Peer Group Support Workers Anna has lived in Hampshire, Swansea and Taunton over the past 10 years, so has enjoyed travelling around and she loves music, as well as cats and dogs, although has a fear of snakes.
Sharon - Peer Group Support Workers Having worked in the Charitable sector for the past decade I am delighted to be working within the Somerset Mental Wellbeing Service.  After holding a more back office role in fundraising, I missed out on working with the people I was getting funding to help, so whilst making the transition to engaging directly with clients,  gained my Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills and continue to enjoy supporting others on their own journeys to staying well.
