I am a local disabled person and I got involved with Trafford CIL in its early days, becoming a board member for the steering group that set the organisation up. I am fully committed to the twin aims of the organisation to be a user led service and to support all people who experience barriers to inclusion to live independently in the community. I am currently the Trafford Deaf Support Broker. I work with deaf individuals to obtain access to services that exist for people in Trafford. I also support local grass roots organisations of deaf people. I have helped Trafford Hard of Hearing Group fund raise for lip reading classes and recruit a volunteer. I have helped Trafford Blind and Deaf Social Group to develop a strategy to recruit new members. I am an accredited Access Consultant and I have campaigned to remove access barriers.
I joined Trafford CIL in September 2014 as the TDAN Project Coordinator – a community role encouraging Trafford residents to access health and wellbeing activities. The role has allowed me to bring together previously learned skills from the 12 years’ experience I have of working with people with disabilities, along with an understanding of the local community having been brought up in the Trafford area. I really love the work I do and am truly inspired by the people I have the honour to meet every day.
In my spare time, I like to potter around my allotment or get together with friends. I also love to swim and snowboard and am a member of our local WI.
My name is Clare and I am one of the Life Coaches here at Trafford CIL. Life coaching is all about helping someone to turn their DESIRE into a GOAL, identify OBSTACLES in their life and RESOURCES that will help them get to their goal, and making an ACTION PLAN to achieve it. A DESIRE is something you want and hope will happen to you, but a GOAL is more definite: it is something you plan and make effort to achieve for yourself.
