Leah monitors, supports and plans board, resources and capacity. Leah is involved in most of the portfolios including resource management systems, IT systems, processes and programming for the programme.

I think Taith has the potential to open up opportunities for so many people across Wales and the world. I’m excited to find out more about the organisations and projects that can offer these and how we can help them to do this. We have a really dedicated and passionate team who I love working with. I have a lot of experience managing grant programmes in the voluntary and youth sectors in Wales, both national and international as well as a background in IT systems content development.

I’m excited about contributing to develop a groundbreaking programme that offers so many benefits to Wales on so many levels. Experiencing other countries and cultures transformed my own life, and I relish the idea that we are providing those life-changing opportunities to a wide range of sectors, communities and individuals in Wales.

Luke Evans

Grants Assistant

As grants assistant, Luke provides administrative support to the grants and finance team and liaises with participants about the Taith funding streams.

Having spent most of my professional life working with the charity/third sector, I fully appreciate the importance of building constructive and lasting relationships, between grant funder and recipients.

I’ve also seen first-hand how valuable travel can be, for building self-confidence and broadening your horizons – and I’m excited to support Taith, as they reduce barriers to travel and make learning exchanges as far-reaching and inclusive as possible.

In her role, Claire engages with the schools sector and supports it with all aspects of the Taith programme, raising awareness of the opportunities across the sector in Wales and providing advice and guidance to applicants and beneficiaries. Claire works closely with key stakeholders and contributes to the long-term strategic goals of Taith.

I’m thrilled to be part of this team as I know first hand the benefits from exchange programmes.  This is an exciting opportunity for learners in Wales to learn from others internationally as well as for us to host international visitors and showcase the best of Wales. I look to bring positivity and support to all of the team and look forward to embracing all of the challenges that lie ahead.
