Christine Brian


I started my career in social care with Cartrefi as a Support Worker before entering into various management roles within the organisation.  The experience I gained from this time has stayed with me throughout my career which has lasted 30 years culminating in my role as Deputy Chief Executive for another Charity that supported adults to live valued lives in the community. 


I now feel in a good position to share my knowledge and experience to support the future direction and sustainability  of Cartrefi . I have always been interested in how people can best be supported to have a say in how they want to live their life. 


I have been fortunate in my career to have seen that  people can realise their full potential when  supported to be  part of a/the  community. I have spent a large proportion of my career promoting effective communication to  ensure  that vulnerable  people , their family members, their supporters their staff groups have a voice and are listened to. 


I currently work as an Associate  Mediator and Conflict Coach.


I am married with two sons and two Golden retrievers all of which keep me very busy. I enjoy walking, reading, going on holiday and if there’s time spending it in the garden and green house.
