In partnership with the Caerphilly Cares team at Caerphilly County Borough Council, we are pleased to announce that The Parish Trust has been able to recruit a new member of staff to assist with the CARE Project and to help shape the development of food poverty initiatives within the Borough.
Emma Riedel is our new CARE Project Assistant and will be assisting The Parish Trust to become increasingly robust and authoritative in the area of food poverty and its alleviation. Speaking of the appointment, Rev. Dean Aaron Roberts, CEO, said,
This is an exciting development for the charity, flowing from an exciting and close partnership that we are privileged to enjoy with Caerphilly Council, in particular the Caerphilly Cares Team. We’re very fortunate to have Emma joining us who brings significant skills and enthusiasm, and has already fitted well into the staff team here at The Parish Trust. Emma and the role she will play in the work of the charity will make us more robust as an organisation, and, from a strategic point of view, lay some solid foundations for the charity’s continued growth and its deepening of relationships with public and private sector institutions.
Emma will be assisting Luke Coleman, our CARE Project Lead, for part of her time, whilst being an advocate and link between The Parish Trust and Caerphilly Cares, attending training and meetings which look at tackling the challenges around food and food poverty in the county. She will play an active part in the Caerphilly Cares Food Network, a consortium of organisations across the area who will meet to share good practice, plan initiatives related to food poverty, and have a voice in developing and shaping local policy.
