Kirsty (she/her) – Social Worker – Operations Manager

Kirsty is a Social Worker who started with Umbrella Cymru on placement when she was studying her social work degree.  She loved the work so much, she stayed as a Support Worker, Service Manager, and now she’s the overall Operations Manager. 

You won’t find many people more passionate about rights and empowerment than Kirsty; she always keeps the client at the heart of everything she does (and she has a big heart).  Kirsty works tirelessly to support people directly at the same time as constantly reviewing and developing practices and processes.  She’s a critical thinker who is always on the lookout for ways to improve and expand the services available to people.

Anna (she/her) – Support Worker

Anna joined Umbrella Cymru as a Support Worker for XIST in 2020, during the pandemic.  She is one of the most caring and compassionate people we know.  She has a collection of degrees (she loves to learn), and has a very inquisitive mind. 

Anna is always keen to encourage autonomy and offer choice, whether that’s about what people want to achieve, how they would best achieve it, or when, she will always explain all available options to make sure everyone has the most up-to-date information to enable them to make informed decisions and have control over their support.

Anna works with Umbrella Cymru part time (4 hours a day, 4 days a week).  She’s also part of Gender Construction Kit and volunteers with Mermaids.
