Geraint Jenkins

Now CEO, I joined Cartrefi Cymru in 2011 originally as an Area Manager. My career started in a local nursing home working as a Care Assistant when I left school. Whilst there, I began studies to become a nurse, but quickly realised the Health Service was not for me, so I took a leap of faith and joined the third sector. Supporting adults with learning difficulties became very important to me and I have been fortunate to have been able to work in a variety of settings across Wales and England.

My education has mainly been vocational based following my school years, including several Leadership and Management Diplomas. More recently I have had the opportunity to study ‘Vanguard People Centred Services’ with Buckingham and Kingston universities.

I have been active in the voluntary sector from a young age; lots of my spare time is spent supporting local charities such as the St John Ambulance Brigade and the Welsh Ambulance service. 

My other passions are spending time with my young family, listening to music and attempting to get fit!
