Jonny Wood

Community Development Officer Men’s Sheds

Jonny has worked in the VCSE sector as a development officer, volunteer co-ordinator and community worker for over two decades, much of that in the East of England but also in Yorkshire and the South. He comes to CAS with an ongoing commitment to developing, supporting and resourcing Men’s Sheds, working to reduce social isolation and improve health and wellbeing outcomes for (especially but not exclusively) older men. Jonny has also worked with community groups in both rural and urban settings, founded and co-ordinated a volunteer centre in North Norfolk and served as a Regional Development Officer for the national charity ‘Re-Engage’.

A former teacher, Jonny also maintains an active interest in trustee training & development, governance issues and charity law, and is currently a trustee with a lively charity supporting people with disabilities in Great Yarmouth. Away from work, Jonny is often to be found playing keyboards and singing in rock and soul bands in his local area.
