Name: Cath Dyer (Elected Member to 31 July 2019)
Occupation: Parent / full time carer of 2 disabled daughters. (Previous – TA in Welsh school, and piano teacher).
Current Role: Welsh and English media officer. Trust representative on Swans Disabled Supporters Association (DSA) committee and member of the Awards Night committee and newly elected as associate director.
Why did you join the Trust Board: Being a Swans fan since 1981, on our return to Swansea from Mid Wales, I joined the Trust Board as a co-opted member in September 2011. I wanted to promote, contribute to and be part of an organisation which was so important to me.
What attributes/skills are you able to bring to the Board?
I am a fluent Welsh speaker, and am confident in speaking with the media through English and Welsh. I also have a broad knowledge of all disabilities and keen to promote inclusion and equality. I am a very organized person, and happy to do my share of jobs. I am very friendly and will always do my best to help people where I can. Am very conscious that all fans deserve to have the chance to fully enjoy a match day experience.
How do you feel the Trust can further develop its representation of members and the wider fan base?
Raising the Trust profile is very important, and developing and maintaining positive working relationships within the club and with our members, young and old alike through community activities plus DSA events where disabled people can come and join in with players and fans alike as equality and inclusion is also paramount in football.
