Rebecca Iddon - CEO

Welcome and Introductions

Welcome to the CEO blog, it is here I will provide our supporters, members and guests with updates on the fantastic work of the Touch Trust and the difference being made to the lives of one of the most vulnerable groups in society.

Firstly, I would like to introduce myself, my name is Rebecca Iddon and I am delighted to have been appointed as the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for the Touch Trust, based in the iconic Wales Millennium Centre. I am thrilled to be here and I am very excited to be leading the charity into a bright future. Over the past 10 years I have worked to uphold the rights of children, young people and adults, ensuring their access to service and support which can enhance their independence and potential.

When making the decision to join the Touch Trust, several areas stood to me including, the endgame really is all about improving life outcomes for those who attend the centre, the staff team who really do have the best interest of those who visit the centre in their hearts and the cross sections of society that do and could benefit from the amazing work carried out by the Touch Trust. However nothing was more prominent for me than the memories I have of a visit I made to the centre almost 2 years ago.

During this relatively short visit, I experienced a world of positivity, energy and excitement that is sometimes rare commodity in the ever changing world of the third sector. This entrancing experience was one that has remained with me since the visit and a feeling I shall hold on to when guiding the charity forward in the future.

We have a great team of staff, volunteers and members here at the Touch Trust and I am excited to take the charity forward as  we continue to develop services and projects for those we need it the most.
