Rhian has worked in the disability and inclusion sector for 6 years and is passionate about the positive impact physical activity and sport can have on peoples’ lives. Rhian has been working at Cara for 2 and a half years and currently is the Training and Education Coordinator.
One of the programmes Rhian leads on is ‘Active Healthy Me’ which is a health and wellbeing programme that is delivered directly to people with disabilities in adult day care services. The programme was developed in partnership with the HSE and Sport Ireland to support the adoption of a positive culture and capacity among people with disabilities and adult day services towards the awareness and understanding of the health benefits of physical activity and raise awareness of the opportunities that are available to them to participate within their local community.
Rhian coordinates the training and education framework across Cara and is enthusiastic about the process of education, learning and development and understanding the role educators, programmes, tutors and coaches can play in creating positive, inclusive learning environments for everyone and provide high quality participation opportunities for people with disabilities across Ireland.
