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.
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.
Hazel is a West Somerset girl born

Welsh born Janine has lived in
Somerset for 17 years. A keen music
and rugby fan, she enjoys going to gigs
and supporting the Welsh team
through the good and mostly bad!
Jem grew up in Kent but loves
Somerset. In the summer, if he’s not
at a music festival, he might be cycling
