Helen started working for Adoption UK Cymru in 2009, and as such is one of the longest serving members of staff! Since those early days, the staff & structure of the team in Wales has grown & changed massively. 

Initially, her role was helpline adviser and administrator. Whilst she continues in that role, she also supports and works with a number of wonderful helpline volunteers, and takes responsibility for communication with the membership in Wales via regular bulletins etc, and oversees much of the social media engagement, informing members in Wales of groups, training & local events. 

Helen has 2 adult daughters, and has personal experience of adoption in her close family.
