Community Project Assistant
I am Niamh Pert I am coach with Strathmore Community Rugby Trust. I started working for the Trust when the Autism-Friendly Rugby sessions first started, initially as a volunteer but latterly as a coach. My first experience of the Trust when a friend took me along to the Rugby Academy when it first began in 2018. The Rugby Academy has been great for me and from there I decided I wanted to be part of what the Trust do.
I enjoy the sense of achievement working for the Trust gives me. It is helping to improving my skills as a player and a coach, helping me work on my communication skills and giving me experience of working with children with different needs. Through my work with other organisations I have experience of working with hard to reach children and young adults and I bring this experience to the Trust. I currently hold the following qualifications; UKCC level 1 rugby coach, first aid and level 1 referee.
