Nicky Russell

This Community Can Project Officer

Nicky joined CAS in 2018 to work on a project ‘This Community Can’ which, backed by Sport England, aims to tackle rural isolation across Suffolk with volunteer-led activities. Those involved range from toddlers enjoying family fitness to elderly people gardening together. The groups are very different but alike in that they all provide opportunities for activity and for socializing in a warm, welcoming and inclusive setting.

Previously; Nicky ran group sessions and workshops for adults with learning disabilities and is passionate about community inclusion for people who are often marginalized. Nicky is experienced in managing an effective team of volunteers and actively volunteers in her spare time as a driver for Re-Engage and as a dog-walker for the Cinnamon Trust.
