We’re delighted that Lyn Edwards has just joined BCT as our new Operations Manager.
Lyn qualified as a nurse¬†and has experience of¬†paediatric oncology and general nursing.¬†She has been¬†a childminder and a foster carer for disabled children and young people,¬†and for the last 23 years she has been working for a charity based in Leicestershire, supporting disabled¬†children and their families.
While in that role,¬†Lyn authored, designed and delivered a disability awareness training programme for early years providers, and was responsible for an inclusion project that supported disabled children and young people to access play, sport and leisure activities.
Until she was 18, Lyn lived all over the world including Africa, the Far East and the Middle East. This time was foundational for her faith, her future career choices, her values and who she is as an individual. She describes herself as a gentle activist, passionate about the rights of all children and young people, especially those who are at risk and those marginalised by society.
Please pray for Lyn as she steps into her new role.
