Disability Enabling & Empowerment Project (DEAEP) Newsletter.
Welcome to the 1st Quarterly newsletter from DEAEP; as this is our inaugural edition we thought we’d say a BIG Hello from the team:
Jayne Linney – Director & Training Officer: I’m a (long) time served Community Worker/Adult Tutor, who became disabled through developing a range of health conditions over the past 15 years. Interests are Equality issues across the board.
Nicki Linney – Director & Care & Support Officer: I’m a qualified carer with a back ground in Peer Support and Mental Health Support. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and a borderline personality disorder in 2012.
Tony Hamon – Director & Training Officer: I am a qualified TEFL tutor who also holds the City & Guilds Adult Education Award. With my Internal/External Assessor Awards this gives me with a broad knowledge base and understanding of teaching and assessing adults.
Wayne Naylor – Director & Treasurer: I have 18 years experience of volunteering and working in a number of Community Projects. Supporting people is vital in making the securing futures for people living with disabilities.
