Mark Llewellyn joins Carers Trust as Wales Trustee and Chair of Wales Advisory Board
Carers Trust is delighted to have appointed Professor Mark Llewellyn as Wales Trustee and Chair of its Wales Advisory Board.
As Professor of Health and Care Policy at the University of South Wales, Mark has been immersed in the issues of carers and the third sector in Wales for many years. His work looks at the ways relationships between people, their carers, and the local and national organisations that support them can be improved.
Mark is particularly focused on the ways carers’ voice are heard and the amount of control they have over the things that matter most to them. His key aim is to maximise the positive contribution that independent research and data can make to the everyday experience of unpaid carers across Wales.
He lives with his wife and three sons in South-West Wales, where he volunteers at the local cricket club.
The dual role at Carers Trust sees Mark join the Board of Trustees and lead the Wales Advisory Board, which is made up of carers, colleagues and members of Carers Trust’s network of local carer organisations. It aims to ensure the charity is well managed and delivers excellent outcomes for unpaid carers across Wales.
Mark Llewellyn said:
“I was drawn to applying to Carers Trust in this role as Wales Trustee and Chair of the Wales Advisory Board because of research I have undertaken on carers issues, and the positive impact that I hope to be able to bring to the organisation. More than anything, I will work to ensure that Carers Trust Wales begins and ends its work focused on improving the lives of carers, people without whom our care and support system would collapse.”
