Jo CunnahJo Cunnah Area Support Coordinator for North Wales and North and Mid Powys

I have worked in within the Health Charity Sector for 20 years following a career change from Financial Services in 2003. My role is to ensure that people with and affected by MND are supported and empowered by leading the provision of all Association services in my area.

This also involves recruiting, training and managing Volunteers in a number of roles and in particular Volunteers within our Branches and Groups and our Association Visitor Volunteers.

I have been with the Association for over 8 years and that time I have been lucky enough to be part of a fantastic team who have helped to develop our reach across North Wales.

Together, we have not only been able to significantly increase the level of much needed support we provide to People with and affected by MND but also offer that support in a variety of ways, from online support groups, carers groups, face to face meetings and one to one support.

Supporting people is my passion and I am extremely lucky to be able to work with such an amazing team of Volunteers across North Wales who also share that passion. Without their hard work, commitment and support we simply couldn’t do what we do.

On a personal note, I live in North Wales with my family and my very spoilt English Bulldog, Bruce. I really enjoy cooking and anything to do with musical theatre.

Lynwen GriffithAssociation Visitor

My name is Lynwen Griffith, I live on the Llyn Peninsula in North West Wales, a very rural and beautiful region which is also a stronghold for the Welsh language. I live with my husband, our three children, two rabbits, and three dogs, and have worked in this area for 22 years as a community nurse.

My reason to become an Association Visitor (AV) was twofold, having nursed people with MND I felt that in my spare time I could offer support to these patients and their families. My second reason was as our area has a large Welsh speaking community, there were no Welsh speaking AV’s in our locality, and found that it was important that people should have a service available in their chosen language.

Since becoming an AV, I have found the work to be immensely rewarding, being able to support a person with MND and their families during immeasurably hard times. The support from the MND team is always at hand, being both sympathetic and supportive. My goal is to continue with this worthwhile role for many years and to continue enhancing my knowledge on MND and the support that is available to enhance quality of life.
