Hello! I am currently working three days a week with our administrator Caitlyn, and our group of fantastic Volunteers! My first few weeks with LinkAge have been great, I am really enjoying getting stuck in to the role and meeting lots of lovely new people.
A bit about me – I have experience in the field of social care and working for charities; before coming to LinkAge I worked for 5 years for a disabled peoples organisation, as a mental health project worker and trainer, welfare rights adviser, and later as a volunteer coordinator. In my own time I and enjoy photography, all arts and crafts, and I play a few musical instruments (though not particularly well!)".

Hi, my name is Karen and I have recently started working for LinkAge as a Befriending Volunteer Coordinator. I am very excited about joining the organisation, meeting you all and working in Bristol.
I bring with me, years of experience of supporting all ages with a variety of support needs. I am also a keen runner and horse rider. I also enjoy cooking and experimenting with spices, as well as meeting new people.
I really look forward to catching up with you all!
Karen Bennett, Befriending Volunteer Coordinator
