Angela Leonard BSoc Sci

Disability Adviser, Sparkhill


Disability Adviser, Sparkhill

My work has included community family and children’s work, locally in Sparkhill, Birmingham and Wales working for both the city council and voluntary sectors. From frontline to strategic development, this included securing lottery funding, community profiling and reporting to Welsh government regarding disability and funding. Alongside this I also worked as a trainer and assessor designing and facilitating workshops for schools, youth and community, particularly in areas of identity, behaviours (including severe autism) and exclusion.

I qualified with a BSoc Sci at Birmingham University, gaining further knowledge in community, cultural identity and space

I was part of the Think Family initiative working to targets and enabling families to make positive changes which was part my role as a specialist family support worker.

Throughout I have volunteered in my local community.
