Helen Sinclair
Strategic Lead for Engagement & Participation, Neath Port Talbot Council
Jannine Smith continues to offer invaluable support to the Council working closely and supporting Darren Bartley the Engagement & Participation Officer. Jannine has been proactive in assisting the Local Authority to secure a grant funded bid which created an opportunity for Hope the Girls’ Rights Group to undertake two very important projects in relation to ‘period dignity’ and ‘sexual harassment’. Jannine continues to support Yovo and the Junior Safeguarding Board, and in working collaboratively alongside Darren has assisted with the development of a Children’s & Young Persons Comments, Compliments and Complaints leaflet, as well as  improving communication methods with the emergency services by producing a British Sign Language training video with the staff and children at Ysgol Maes y Coed.
