Hello, my name is Kerry and I am a shiny new intern at Grassroots Training. I am a graduate of Psychology with a working background in mental health and charity infrastructure. Over the next few months I will be involved in a range of research and evaluation projects for Grassroots as part of my post-graduate certificate in community enterprise.
At the moment I am implementing a new evaluation system for our courses, which we hope will be a useful tookit to help us measure what you think of our services. Later I will be working with Miranda on creating a set of quality standards around our monitoring and evaluation, and helping Xander in the ongoing pilot of our ASIST course.
On the research side of things I am just starting work on a very interesting project which will look at the repercussions of giving personal accounts of mental health issues in our 1 in 4 course. All very exciting and interesting work!
I feel very settled and at home in the team already, and I am honoured to be contributing to such a worthwhile and important cause.
