Angela Charlton
Director Wales

At Ramblers since:  2008
Working hours:  Full time
Welsh speaker:  Learning

What I do:  My role involves steering Ramblers Cymru to deliver high quality projects and reach a wider audience. I want us to be relevant to everyone in Wales, wherever they are. I ensure we maintain a high profile and a strong voice with Welsh Government and partners in Wales. 

About me:  I have over 20 years experience in the voluntary sector, including community engagement in both the rural and urban environment context. My previous roles cover environmental education, fundraising, project development and management, countryside management and walk leading. I am from South Wales and have a real passion to see the people of Wales have every opportunity to flourish in a sustainable way whilst meeting the needs of the people and the environment.

Working hours: Full time 
Welsh speaker:  Yes 


What I do:  I manage Let’s Walk Cymru and identify/develop opportunities to promote walking as a means of improving health and wellbeing, particularly to those not currently engaged in physical activity.

About me:
  I have worked in the Third Sector in Wales since 2000, managing organisations, programmes and projects.

Prior to joining Ramblers Cymru, I was Chief Executive of a large social care provider in Swansea, and have previous experience of working in social housing, domestic violence services and disability equality.

I am a qualified MSP Practitioner and Licensed PQASSO Mentor, and am experienced in continuous improvement/Quality Management, business development/income generation and developing successful funding bids.

Outside work, I am a Trustee of a specialist Domestic Abuse charity and Vice Chair of Governors at a local comprehensive school. I live with my family (and 6 rescue cats!) in the Vale of Glamorgan.

 

Rebecca Brough
Policy and Advocacy Manager


At Ramblers since:  March 2014
Working hours:  Full time
Welsh speaker:  Learning 


What I do:  I make sure that politicians and public bodies in Wales hear about Ramblers views and use our passion and knowledge of the outdoors to influence their decision-making. This involves meeting politicians, responding to consultations, writing briefings and monitoring policy developments.  I also help Ramblers members influence their local politicians by supporting them with information on current policy and research. At present, my priority is building relationships with Assembly members and the new Welsh Government cabinet following the 2016 Assembly elections, and promoting the improvements to access we called for in the Ramblers Cymru's manifesto.

About me:  I have a background in policy influencing work in the governmental, charity and statutory sectors.  With my degrees in Geography and Tourism and Environmental management, the Ramblers mission is one I feel passionate about. I live by the coast and regularly walk sections of Wales Coast Path with my family and my excitable border collie, Jess.

 

Kate Marshall

Kate Marshall
People and Walking Officer

At Ramblers since:  January 2017
Working hours:  Full time
Welsh speaker:  Learning

What I do:  My role is to support Ramblers Cymru volunteers to ensure they are able to reach their potential through improving internal systems, upskilling and promoting volunteer opportunities. Another exciting element of my role is to deliver The Big Welsh Walk in May 2017, which is a 4 route challenge event set in Ceredigion.

About me: Since 2004 I’ve enjoyed working within the education, heritage and Third Sector, mainly in England helping develop new ideas through training, volunteer support and communications. Outside work, I’m a volunteer manager within The Scout Association, where I spend my free time training fellow volunteers and enabling youngsters to enjoy and appreciate the outdoors. So, if I’m not in work, I’m in a field with Scouts or off walking with my Collie, Mavis.

Engagement and Communications Officer

What I do:  My role is to work with Ramblers volunteers to collect as much information about the great work they do across Wales. Presenting and sharing this information will form part of my main activity by creating content that is interesting and eye-catching. I will be making the most of the variety of ways to share this information including press, media and online social media.. I look forward to working closely with the team members in Cardiff and providing further communications to the various projects currently being undertaken.

About me: The last 15 years have been spent working in community development, adult education and tourism. I've been enjoying the great outdoors since the 1970s and have shared walking activities with friends and family. I am the coordinator of Tregaron Walking Club.
