Charlie Paradise joins SMASH as a Trustee

Hi my name is Charlie and I am really looking forward to becoming part of the SMASH family and really helping to make a difference.

I currently work for the council in the Community Health and Wellbeing team, supporting local people of all ages to overcome their challenge/ barriers to leading a healthier and sometimes happier lifestyle. I have worked with young people for the last 10 years in different roles and I understand how challenging life can be with all the pressures of growing up, education and sometimes home life- charities like SMASH are essential to help young people have the best chance they can to reach their potential.

I am hoping to bring some passion, experience and hard work to the table to help SMASH become resilient to the growing demands and changing landscape, supporting the volunteers who make such a big difference in the local community. I have experience of working in the charity sector, public service and university settings and I am really looking forward to working with you all.
