Bronwen O'Byrne - Buddy Scheme Coordinator
Bronwen has been with the Buddy Scheme since its start in 2008. She has seen the service through very early pilot stages with just four volunteers and still enjoys meeting new volunteers and clients - as well as working with the ones who have been around for a while! Bronwen is a member of the Wiltshire Volunteer Managers' Group as well as being a member of that national Volunteer Managers' network.
Bronwen is also an assessor for the Mentoring and Befriending Foundation. She is a great believer in the value of volunteering and says:
"Mentoring is a great enabler - not only for the client but for the volunteer - to help them along to achieve their own aims and objectives."
