Rhys Eynon Learning Disability Champion
Hello, my name is Rhys Eynon and I am of the four Learning Disability Champions representing Pembrokeshire.
I have been diagnosed with Autistic spectrum disorder on a low level. It doesn’t stop me from living my life to the full and helping out where I can.
My role is to represent the southern parts of Pembrokeshire in the area of communities and groups. I cover the following areas, Tenby, Narberth, Haverfordwest, Milford Haven, Neyland and Pembroke. This role involves me working closely with the Community Connectors crew from PAVS (Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services) who together aim to improve individual and community well-being (one of their many goals). I also work with Norman Industries and assist them in promoting their key events.
This means that I am often travelling around the county meeting various groups and individuals.
What I aim to achieve is a greater diversity of services and activities that are accessible to everyone regardless of their ability. To see people with disabilities, integrate and socialise with more able minded people through common interests. Be it sport, music, games, the creative arts and so on.
Outside of work, I volunteer regularly for the British Red Cross and for Span Arts. Both organisations rely on volunteers to carry out and provide their services to the wider public.
My interests: I am very passionate about music and at the moment into most genres (preferably rock and electronic music). Creating playlists for occasions and making my own music are my specialties in this hobby. Other hobbies include creative writing, gaming, watching live music events and playing football.
I plan to highlight various services and groups in a special article once per month that will be available to read on this site as well as via PAVS.
