We are pleased to invite you to join group facilitator Richard Zimbler for the next meeting of our Wrexham & Wales peer support group where we are delighted to welcome guest speaker Jon Hignett, Growing Support Consultant for the National Trust in Wales.
National Trust, formally National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty, is a charity and membership organisation for heritage conservation in England, Wales and Northern Ireland that care for the nature, beauty & history that surrounds us.
Jon will be speaking about some of the activities and experiences that are available in the Trust and how accessibility friendly they are for the visually impaired across Wales.
Here is a personal introduction from Jon:-
My name is Jon Hignett, I work for the National Trust in Wales as a Growing Support Consultant. That means I support National Trust teams at places in Wales with all things to do with admissions, service, membership and on-property fundraising. As well as this role I’m also part of the team in Wales that is working on improvements to our accessibility. So I’ve been involved in lots of work that our teams are doing, some is physical improvement such as ramps or better paths, some is finding ways to improve the experience – whether that is purchasing equipment, making any obstacles clearer to visitors, or making changes to how we present information so that more people can access the story of the places we care for.
Please come along to find out about some of the National Trust sites near you and ask any questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you there!
This meeting will be held online via Zoom.
